Bundle Description

As part of the GSC TGI-3 program, almost 500 samples from the Quebec portion of theAbitibi greenstone belt were re-analysed.  These rocks had previously been analysed for major elements and the results are stored in the SIGEOM database.  The SIGEOM analyses were republished along with the new data in GSC Open File 6623.  This sample bundle contains the SIGEOM legacy data.

Analytical and publication metadata for the SIGEOM data are missing.
