Survey Description


In 1983, regional geochemical lake sediment sampling was carried out on eastern Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.  Approximately 314 samples were collected at a density of 1 sample per 7.45 km2.  Samples were collected using a gravity corer or ‘torpedo’ released by the sampler from the float of the helicopter.

Samples were partially air-dried in the field and then oven-dried and disaggregated at Technical University of Nova Scotia.  The dried samples were then sieved to 200 mesh.  TUNS analysed the samples for 10 elements by AAS, U by fluorimetry, F by specific ion electrode and V by XRD.  The samples were also analysed for Mo.

Water samples were also collected but no details of the sampling were given.  Maps for U, F, pH in water are available in each of the open files listed below.

The data are published as a series of Nova Scotia Department of Mines and Energy Open File Maps that were jointly published with the Geological Survey of Canada:

 

NSDME Open File Map GSC Open File
86-028 to 86-030 1269 to 1271
86-032 to 86-035 1291 to 1294

 

A summary of the work can be found in Nova Scotial Department of Mines and Energy Open File Report 90-017.

This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.

The geographic extent of the survey is defined by the following polygons:

  • Covers part of NTS 11F (Canso), a small part of 11K (Sydney), and the terrestrial parts of 11G, J (both Glace Bay), the southeastern part of Cape Breton Island.  It is bounded to the north, east and south by the Atlantic Ocean and to the west by Bras d’Or Lake.
