Survey Description

In 1980, a heavy mineral sampling survey was conducted in 5 zones with high potential mineralization of tungsten:

-  Granit aureole Stanhope

-  St. Roberts Metals

-  Matapedia alteration hydrothermal zones

-  Rivière à la Truite

-  Metamorphic aureole Mounts McGerrigle

The area covers 275 km2.  A total of 143 stream samples were collected and panned.  Samples were analysed for Cu, Zn, Co, Mo, Ag, As, Sn and W.

The data are published in Open File DPV-782, Department of Energy and Resources, 1982.
