Survey Description


In the summer of 1972 and 1973, a stream sediment sampling survey was conducted in the Rouyn-Noranda region, Quebec.  The area covers 4000 km2.  A total of 8286 samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 0.5 km2.  Samples were analysed for:

 

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

HNO3

atomic absorption (AAS)
U

HNO3

paper chromatography

 

The data are published in Open File DPV-501, Department of Natural Resources, 1977.  Raw data, sample locations are published in Open File DPV-502.  Since only half of the samples were analysed for Mo and U and that results of analyses were high in many cases, it was decided that the rest of the samples were analysed for Mo and U.  All samples were also analysed for mineral indicators for Mo, gold and polymetallic sulphides.  The Open File DPV-840 was published in 1981 and included the second series of analyses, comments and discussion of results.

This survey is also part of a compilation DPV-608, published in 1979.
