Survey Description

In 1980, a lithogeochemical survey and ground radiometrics were carried out in central Labrador in the area of the Hopedale Block and the Island Harbour Complex.  The work focused on three anomalous areas for uranium identified by Newfoundland and Labrador Deparment of Mines and Energy (OF LAB/0408) in follow up studies to a GSC lake sediment surveys (GSC OFs 557-560).

A summary of the work can be found in Geological Survey of Canada Paper 82-1C (Current Research Part C, p. 19-29).

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

  • Covers small parts of NTS 13N/3(Shapio Lake) and 13N/6 (untitled) in central Labrador.  The centre of the study area is located approximately 66 km southwest of Hopedale.

  • Covers almost half of NTS 13N/7 (untitled) in central Labrador.  The eastern edge of the study area is located approximately 23 km west of Hopedale.

  • Covers part of the east half of NTS 13N/01 (Kanairiktok Bay) and part of the west half of 13O/04 (Bay of Islands) in central Labrador.  It is bounded to the west by Kanairiktok Bay and to the south by latitude 55°N.  The centre of the study area is located approximately 38 km southeast of Hopedale.
