AbstractThis open file reports geochemical data for till samples collected in 2015 and 2016 as part of a reconnaissance-scale till sampling and surficial mapping project across the southern Core Zone, Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador (NTS map sheets 23-I and 23-P). Additional geochemical data (Au, Pt, Pd) of till samples collected in 2014 are also reported here as well as re-analysis of select archived till samples collected by the Geological Survey of Canada as part of the Canada - Newfoundland Mineral Development Agreement (1984-1989) in the southern Core Zone. Data reported in this open file include geochemical analyses of the <0.063 mm fraction using aqua regia (partial), borate fusion (total), and fire assay (total Au, Pt, Pd), as well munsell colour, grain-size data, loss on ignition, and total carbon analyses.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report describes till geochemical data for samples collected in 2015 in the south Core Zone region of northern Quebec and western Labrador. The data supports mineral exploration activities in the region.
