Release Notice Text


Regional geochemical lake bottom sediment and till sampling in the Timmins-Val-d’Or region of Ontario and Quebec. The project was initiated under the Special Employment Plan of the Federal Winter Works Program. It was planned and supervised by E.H.W. Hornbrook and carried out under contract by C.F. Gleeson & Associates Ltd. The objectives of the project were to evaluate various aspects of exploration geochemistry in the clay belt environment of this region; to provide data useful for mineral exploration, and to provide winter employment within the area. The report consists of two large data books containing field records, analytical data, and simple statistical treatment, together with location maps for the sample sites.

Examination points:
