Survey Description


Between 1977 and 1982, the Department of Energy and Resources decided to undertake the whole covering of the Gaspé Peninsula.  The area covers 8500 km2.  A total of 24203 stream sediments were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 0.4 km2.  Samples were analysed for:

 

Element Dissolution Technique
Cu, Pb, Zn, Ni, Co, Mn, Mo, Ag, Sn   atomic absorption (AAS)
U   visual colorimetry or fluorimetry
Loss on ignition (LOI)    

 

The data are published in Open File DV 84-04, Department of Energy and Resources, 1984.  Samples collected by SOQUEM and other mapping surveys (DPV-563, ES-19, DPV-674, DPV-854, DP-55, DV 82-02) are included in this document.  Samples were reanalysed and data are published.
