Survey Description


During the summer of 1977, helicopter-supported lake sediment and water sampling was carried out in eastern Labrador.  Samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 13 km2.  Sample site and grid cell duplicate samples were routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 512.

The samples were reanalysed by INAA and published in GSC Open File 2473 along with the original data from OF 512.

This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.
