AbstractThis open file presents field and laboratory observations of a stream sediment survey carried out during the 1975 field season in Prince Edward Island. The survey was carried out in conjunction with the Maritime well water survey (Dyck, et al, 1976a, Dyck et al, 1976b) to determine the general usefulness of such surveyx for U prospecting and to evaluate the geochemical character of the island. The survey was managed by the Geological Survey of Canada in conjunction with the Prince Edward Island Department of Industry and Commerce under the terms of the Canada-PEI agreement on the Uranium Reconnaissance Program. Approximately 380 stream sediments were collected at an average density of one sample/15 km2 throughout the 5700 km2 area of the Island. All samples were analysed for U, Zn, Cu, Pb, Mn, and Fe. The data are available in the form of a listing and digitally on magnetic tape.
