AbstractA deposit-scale study of the hydrology and hydrochemistry of surface and groundwaters has been initiated in the Bathurst Mining Camp as part of the EXTECH II program. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of hydrogeochemical methods in the exploration for buried deposits within the Bathurst Mining Camp. Preliminary work has focussed on the Halfmile Lake and Restigouche Zn-Pb deposits. At the Restigouche deposit, samples of stream, spring, seep, and borehole waters have been collected and measured for a wide range of trace elements and stable isotopes. Surface waters are dominantly low total dissolved solids (TDS) Ca-HCO3-waters, with differences between streams reflecting underlying lithology. Ore-related elements (e.g. Pb, Zn, K) are well correlated with proximity to the Restigouche deposit. Groundwaters at Restigouche are highly variable in composition and range from shallow waters similar to stream waters, to deeper Na-Ca-Cl saline waters resembling brines from the Canadian Shield. Groundwaters at Restigouche are very different from those at the Halfmile Lake deposit, reflecting differences in hydrology and recharge history.
