Data Description:

Paper maps.

Quantities Analysed:

<0.063 mm fraction by ICP-AES after aqua regia for Cu, Pb, Zn, Ni, Mn and Ag; by fusion-ICP for Sn; by INAA for Fe, Th, U, W, Au, As, Sb and Co; by cold vapour-AAS for Hg.

Geochem Maps Available:

Map Plates 96-2A, 2B, and 2C are symbol maps showing the distribution of elements analyzed in till.
