Newfoundland and Labrador
Soil and till sampling survey, NTS 14D, 24A, western Labrador, 1984.
(requires an Internet connection)
904 till, 91 esker/outwash, 6 glacial lake, 3 A-horizon soil, 339 B-horizon soil, 195 C-horizon and 209 mudboil samples were collected in the Strange Lake area, western Labrador in 1984. Sampling was conducted using a nominal 2 by 2 km grid over an approximately 1100 km2 area. In areas close to mineralization, sample spacing was decreased to 500 m or less. The data are published in Newfoundland Department of Mines and Energy Open File Lab/0843.
