Pedogeochemical inventory of the Abitibi territory, Quebec, 1976-1982.

Project Description

Since 1976, the Service de géochimie-géophysique is evaluating the implement of surficial geochemical techniques in glaciolacustrine environment.  Based on significant amount of data from different geochemical environments, a regional pedogeochemical technique was established in the Abitibi territory.  This new survey technique is based on a large grid soil sampling.

The following surveys were conducted:
