Survey Description


During the summer of 1965, a stream sediment sampling survey was conducted in the Mont Richardson area, Quebec.  The area covers 100 km2.  A total of 110 samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 0.9 km2 in duplicata, at 1000 feet intervals, on 5 creeks: small tributaries on the eastern side of Rivière Ste-Anne-Nord-Est and the neighbourhood of Castor Lakes.  The samples were analysed for Cu, Zn, Pb and Mo.

The data are published in preliminary report RP-563, Department of Natural Resources, Quebec, 1967.
