Survey Description

In 1967, approximately 4600 stream sediment samples were collected in the Lac Kipawa area at an average density of 1 sample per 0.6 km2.  The entire area covers 2700 km2.  The samples were analysed for:


Element Dissolution Technique
Cu, Zn, Pb


Ni, Co pyrosulfate fusion with HCl colorimetry
Mn, Ag aqua-regia + HCl atomic absorption (AAS)


Mo HCl colorimetry

The data and the sample locations are published on a map in Open File DP 037, Department of Energy and Resources, Quebec, 1969.

In 1982, a geoscientific compilation was published and the data were presented in a new mode of presentation (DP 83-01).  This survey is part of a compilation DV 87-22, published in 1987.
