Survey Description

In 1970, a stream sediment sampling survey was conducted in the Réservoir Cabonga east area, Parc de la Vérendrye, Quebec.  The area covers 5000 km2. A total of 4826 samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per km2 and analysed for:


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


atomic absorption (AAS)


visual colorimetry
Mo HCl visual colorimetry


The data are published in Open File DP-83-20, Department of Energy and Resources, 1984.  Data were first published as rolling means maps, sample locations and geologic compilation in special report S-138, Department of Natural Resources, 1972.  This survey is part of a compilation DV 87-22, published in 1987.
