Hydrogeochemical survey, NTS 55L, Kaminak Lake area, Nunavut, 1971.
(requires an Internet connection)
Field studies were conducted in the vicinity of Kaminak Lake in the Ennadai-Rankin Belt of volcanic and sedimentary rocks, in order to determine the effectiveness of regional geochemical methods, particularly those of hydrogeochemistry.
The 1971 survey was a follow-up to a survey conducted in the previous year. A summary of the work can be found in Geological Survey of Canada Paper 71-43.
