Peat sampling, NTS 64C, northwest Manitoba, 1979.
(requires an Internet connection)
In 1979, peat samples were collected from continuous peat cores in raised permafrost-bearing bogs at 9 sites in the Kasmere Lake area, Manitoba. At each site, a pit was dug to the permafrost table (0.1 – 0.4 m). Below the permafrost, a continuous core was recovered using a frozen ground coring kit. A description of the study can be found in Prospecting in Areas of Glaciated Terrain – 1982.
Paper report. No data lists but tables with ranges of element levels.
<0.180 mm fraction of peat and underlying mineral sediments were analyzed for a suite of elements by AAS, for As by colourimetry, and for U by INAA, delayed counting method. F determined for selected peat samples with an ion-selective electrode after fusion with an Na2CO3-KNO3 flux. Radium was determined on the ashed residue of selected peat samples.
