Survey Description

In January and February 1969, a drilling program was carried out near the Louvem copper deposit in the Val d’Or region of Quebec.  A total of 34 holes (representing 260 samples) were sunk to an average depth of 38 feet in overburden and continued for an average of 3.5 feet into bedrock.  Till and glaciolacustrine sediments were collected from each hole and a sample of bedrock at the bottom of the hole was also collected.

A summary of the study can be found in GSC Report of Activities, Paper 69-1B and CIM Special Volume 11.  The data are found in GAS File 10.
