Survey Description


In the summer of 2014, a total of 36 till samples were collected in during a reconnaissance study of the south Core Zone area, Quebec and Labrador. Samples were collected from hand-dug pits in active mud boils at a depth between 0.2 and 1.0 m.

Two samples were collected at each site, a large till sample (7–13 kg) for recovery of indicator minerals and a ~3 kg sample for geochemical analysis, textural determinations, Munsell colour determination, and archiving.  These sampling protocols were also followed for the collection of an additional 18 samples, which were collected10 to 200 km to the north in support of the GEM-2 bedrock mapping activities.

The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open Files 7967 (till geochemistry) and 7968 (indicator minerals from till).
