Survey Description


In June 2009, fourteen rock samples were collected from exposed outcrops of Nueltin granite plutons.  Two anomalous occurrences of radioactivity were discovered at two sites.  The samples were studied using the scanning electron microscope and the electron microprobe.  Samples were crushed and pulverized before being analysed by XRF and ICP-MS.

The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Current Research (online) 2012-1.
