Survey Description


During the summer of 1978, ten areas in eastern Labrador were selected for detailed follow-up geochemical lake sediment and water sampling, and three or them for airborne gamma ray surveying.  The areas were chosen from the coverage region of the 1977 Labrador Uranium Reconnaissance Program. Lake sediment and water samples were collected from about 750 sites.  Based on results from the gamma-ray survey that were interpreted in the field, a second phase of detailed follow up work was carried out.  A one km2 grid was established over one of the areas of interest.  Rock samples, ground radiometric measurements and overburden samples were collected from the grid.

The data are published in Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Mines and Energy Open File LAB/0408.

  • Covers parts of NTS 13I/6 (Indian Harbour), /11 (Holton Harbour) and /12 (Byron Bay) in eastern Labrador.  It is bounded to the north and east by the Labrador Sea.  The towns of Holton and Emily Harbour are located in the eastern part of the study area.

  • Covers a small part of NTS 13F/15 (Mount Elizabeth) in eastern Labrador.  It is located north of Grand Lake and east of the Naskaupi River.  The centre of the study area is located approximately 53 km northwest of Lake Melville.

  • Covers a small part of NTS 13J/03 (Double Mer) in eastern Labrador.  It is located between Lake Melville and Double Mer and approximately 112 km northeast of the town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

  • Covers a small part of NTS 13G/15 (Neveisik Island) in eastern Labrador.  It is bounded to the north by Lake Melville.  The centre of the study area is located approximately 35 km southwest of the town of Rigolet.

  • Covers a small part of NTS 13H/12 (Barron Lake) in eastern Labrador. The centre of the study area is located approximately 15 km west of the west coast of Sandwich Bay and 37 km southwest of the town of Cartwright.

  • Covers a small part of NTS 13B/7 (untitled) in southern Labrador.  It is located approximately 45 km north of the Labrador-Quebec border.

  • Covers a small part of NTS 13B/3 (Halfway Pond) in southern Labrador.  It is located approximately 30 km southeast of Halfway Pond and 4 km north of the Labrador-Quebec border.
