Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The primary objective of this Open File is to release data obtained from the use of a portable X-ray fluorescence spectrometer from a 96.2 m deep borehole located near Queensville, Ontario. The pXRF data are interpreted using single element trends from the base to the top of the boreholes. Fourteen elements (Ba, Ca, Cu, Fe, K, Mn, Ni, Rb, S, Sr, Ti, V, Zn, and Zr) were detected in sufficient quantities to produce results using the pXRF spectrometer. Results are presented in Appendix A and displayed graphically in Appendix B.
