Survey Description


In 1985-1986, a stream sediment sampling survey was conducted in the St-Camille-de-Bellechasse and St-Pamphile area, Quebec.  The area covers 540 km2.  A total of 715 samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 0.8 km2.  Samples (spaced every 500 m) were collected on a strip of approximately 9 km wide and 60 km long between the two villages.

The <177 micron fraction was analyzed for As, Au, Co, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Mo, Ni, Pb, U, Zn and loss on ignition.

The data are published in Open File DP 88-16, Department of Energy and Resources, 1989.
