Survey Description

In 1991, lake water samples were collected in the area north of Fortune Bay and east of Bay d’Espoir, southern Newfoundland.  A total of 136 samples were collected by helicopter from the centre of the lakes, including 12 pairs of site duplicates.  The survey was conducted over the same area as previous lake sediment surveys (Open Files NFLD/986 and NFLD/1002) although only 108 of the lakes were sampled for both media.

A summary of the work is found in Journal of Geochemical Exploration v. 49.
