Survey Description


In 1975, a lake sediment and surface water sampling survey was conducted by the Société de Développement de la Baie James in the James Bay area.  The area covered by the helicopter supported lake sediment sampling is approximately 54400 km 2. A total of 8542 samples were collected in 2 separate areas, at an average density of 1 sample per 6.4 km 2.

Lake sediment samples were analyzed for:

 

Element Dissolution Technique
Cu, Pb, Zn, Ni, Co, Fe, Mn, Mo, As

HNO 3/HCl

atomic absorption (AAS)
U

HNO 3

fluorimetry
organic matter

HNO 3

colorimetry

 

Surface water sampling was done by helicopter and the area covers approximately 186 km 2. A total of 4500 samples were collected in 2 separate areas, at an average density of 1 sample per 12.1 km 2.  Samples were analyzed for Cu, Fe, Mn, Pb, Zn and U.

The data are published in Open File GM-34038, Department of Natural Ressources, 1978.
