Survey Description

During the summer of 1968, radon concentrations in surface waters were measured in three small lakes (Ryan Lake, Noname Lake and Stinson Lake) and one large lake (Ten Mile Lake) near the city of Elliot Lake in northern Ontario.  Radon determinations in soils were carried out on soil traverses on the northern and southern limbs of the Quirke syncline.

A summary of the work can be found in Geological Survey of Canada Paper 69-46.
