Survey Description


In 1973, centre lake sediment samples were collected over an area covering approximately 2,500 square miles at an average density of about one sample per square mile.  Samples were collected on the eastern part of the Burlington Peninsula, on the Great Northern Peninsula and in southwest Newfoundland.  The data are published in Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Mines and Energy Open File 708.  Selected samples were reanalyzed and published in Open File 880.  Data from this area were also released as part of a compilation in Open File NFLD/904.

Some of these data were reanalyzed and released with data from samples collected at a later date in the following Open Files:

Mapsheet Open File Year
12A 12A/249 1980
12B 12B/237 1980
12H 12H/570 1980
2M, 12P NFLD/1258 1982
12I 12I/147 1982

 

Samples were later reanalyzed by INAA and published with other samples collected in the same areas:

12H 12H/1012 1989

Sampling Procedure

Samples were collected using a lake sediment sampler by crews operating from the pontoon of a helicopter.
