Survey Description


In 1977, a stream sediment sampling survey was conducted in the Mont-Louis area, Quebec.  The area covers approximately 2500 km2.  A total of 5562 samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 0.4 km2 and 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

visual colorimetry

 

The data are published in Open File DPV-674, Department of Natural Resources, 1978.  Some samples were reanalysed for arsenic (colorimetry) and results are published in DV 87-18.
