Survey Description


In 1968, 1978-79, stream sediment sampling surveys were conducted in the Chaleur Bay area, south-east of the Gaspé Peninsula.  These surveys cover 4600 km2. Approximately 13,000 samples were collected at 500 m spacing, along streams at an average density of 1 sample per 0.4 km2 .  In 1968, the sampling was done by Soquem and the samples were transferred to MERQ.  In 1978-79, the sampling was done by MERQ.  The samples were analysed for:

 

Element Dissolution Technique
Cu, Zn, Pb, Ni, Co, Mn, Ag

HNO3

atomic absorption (AAS)
Mo HCl atomic absorption (AAS)
Sn

NH4I, HCl

atomic absorption (AAS)
U

HNO3

paper chromatography

 

The data are published in Open File DPV-854, Department of Energy and Resources, Quebec, 1981.  In 1985, a total of 1960 samples were reanalysed for arsenic and data are published in Open File MB 85-21.
