Survey Description


During the summer of 1978, a lake sediment sampling survey was conducted by SOQUEM in the Saguenay area, Quebec.  The area covers 69000 km2.  A total of 5070 samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 12.8 km2.  Samples (no longer available) were analysed for Cu, Zn, Pb, Ni, Co, Mn, Mo, Fe and U.

Subsequently, the samples were transferred to MERQ and data were published in Open File DP 86-34, Department of Energy and Resources, 1986.  Raw data are published in Open File MB 86-70, Department of Energy and Resources, 1986.
