Survey Description


In 1983, a soil sampling survey from horizons A and B, was conducted in Richardson township.  The area covers 11 km2.  A total of 528 samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 0.02 km2.  Samples were analyzed for:

 

Element Dissolution Technique
Ag, Al, B, Ba, Be, Ca, Cd, Ce, Co, Cr, Cu, Eu, Fe, K, La, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, P, Pb, Sc, Sm, Sr, Th, Ti, V, Y, Zn

HNO3

inductively coupled plasma emission
As, Hg, Sn   atomic absorption (AAS)
U   fluorimetry
Loss on ignition (LOI)    

The data are published in Open File MB 85-10, Department of Energy and Resources, 1985.

In 1985, a second soil sampling survey was conducted in the same area and in the Umex and Caopatina region.  A total of 1219 samples were collected perpendicular to geophysical conductor traces identified in a 1983 survey, at an average density of 1 sample per 0.01km2.  The samples were analysed for:

 

Element Dissolution Technique
Ag, Al, Au, B, Ba, Be, Ca, Cd, Ce, Co, Cr, Cu, Eu, Fe, K, La, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, P, Pb, Sc, Sm, Sr, Th, Ti, V, Y, Zn

HNO3

inductively coupled plasma emission (ICP-ES)
As, Hg   atomic absorption (AAS)
U   fluorimetry
Loss on ignition (LOI)    
S   infra-red
pH, F, conductivity   specific electrode

 

The data are published in Open File MB 87-10, Department of Energy and Resources, 1987.
