In the summer of 1976, a lake sediment, creek and surface water sampling survey was conducted in the context of the project Parc du Saguenay, Quebec. The area covers 490 km2. A total of 232 lake sediment samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 2.3 km2 and 58 stream sediment samples at an average density of 1 sample per 9.4 km2 Those samples were analysed for Cu, Pb, Zn, Ni, Co, Ag, Mn, Hg, Fe, Li, Ba, Cr, Mo, Cs, V, U, Sn and As.
A total of 295 surface water samples were also collected at an average of 1 sample per 1.7 km2 and analysed for Hg, Cr, Mo, Co, Pb, Cd, Cu, Zn, Ni, Mn, Fe, Ca, Mg, Na, K, Li, As, lost on ignition and F (selective electrode).
The data are published in Open File DP-553, Department of Natural Resources, 1978.
