Survey Description


Helicopter-supported lake sediment and water collection was carried out during the summer of 1992 in central Labrador.  Samples were collected at 404 sites at an average density of one sample per 8.9 km2 throughout the 3,600 square kilometre survey area.  Sample site duplicate samples were routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples. The data are published in GSC Open File 2650.

This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.
