Project Description

Portable X-Ray Fluorescence devices were used to obtain geochemical data from drill cores obtained from several localities across Canada.  In some cases, the measurements were made on-site.  In others, the measurements were made on drill core at the GSC’s Tunney’s Pasture archive facility in Ottawa.  The following table lists the borehole locations, and the primary GSC Open File reference for each dataset.
