Survey Description


A lake bottom sediment and till sampling survey was carried out in the Timmins-Val D’Or region of northern Ontario and northwestern Quebec from December 1971 to early April, 1972.  Lake sediments and basal till samples were also collected on a more detailed scale around 4 lakes: Nighthawk Lake, Ontario and Lac Abitibi, Lac Pelletier and Lac Macamic in Quebec.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 112.

Sampling Procedure

Lake sediment samples were collected from lake bottoms through holes chipped, cut or augered through ice.

The geographic extent of the survey is defined by the following polygons:

  • Covers parts of NTS 32D/11 (Palmarolle), northwestern Quebec.  It covers the eastern part of Lac Abitibi and is located approximately 4 km west of the town of Palmarolle.  It is bounded to the west by the Ontario-Quebec border.

  • Covers parts of NTS 31M (Ville-Marie), 31N (Grand-Lac-Victoria), 32C (Senneterre), 32D (Rouyn-Noranda), 41P (Gogama) and 42A (Timmins) in the Abitibi region of northern Ontario and western Quebec.  It is bounded to the west by 82°W longitude to the east by 76.75°W.

  • Covers parts of NTS 32D/14 (La Sarre) and 32D/15 (Rivière Macamic) in northwestern Quebec.  It covers all of Lac Macamic and is located just north of Highway 111 and south of the boundary between Canton de Chazel and Canton de Royal-Roussillon.
