Alluvial heavy minerals
Stream sediment sampling, NTS 21L/1, 8, 9, 10, 16, 21K/12, 13, Saint-Justine - Saint-Pamphile, Quebec, 1989
(requires an Internet connection)
In 1989, heavy mineral preconcentrates and stream sediments were collected at 310 sites in Quebec’s Eastern Townships (Estrie-Beauce) east of the Chaudière River. The area sampled was 3225 km2 producing an average sample density of 1 sample per 10.4 km2. Heavy mineral preconcentrates were extracted from stream sediments by running about 250 kg of stream gravels through a portable suction dredge. The collection of stream sediments represents a departure from the normal practice employed previously in Estrie-Beauce of collecting and analyzing only heavy minerals. The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 2601.
