(requires an Internet connection)
In 1991 and 1992, 841 till samples were collected from C-horizon till or lower B-horizon of soil in central Newfoundland. The data are published in GSC Open File 2823. These samples (including 36 that have been reanalyzed) are also included in element distribution maps published in Newfoundland Department of Natural Resources Open File Nfld/2596.
Paper report; 2 diskettes with data and digital maps.
<0.002 mm and <0.063 mm fractions by ICP-AES after hot nitric acid-hydrochloric acid for 31 elements; <0.063 mm by INAA for 35 elements.
Geochem Maps Available:
Maps showing regional dispersal of As, Ag, Cr, Cu, Mo, Pb (<0.002 mm fraction) and As, Au, U, Zn for <0.063 mm fraction.
