This paper documents work in progress on the devolvement of an index framework and reconnaissance scale overview of subsurface geochemical variability of Southern Ontario; sample data is derived mainly from selected Golden Spike core and demonstrates the feasibility of rapid, accurate and cost effective analysis using pXRF technology for baseline geochemistry. The paper also presents current pXRF methodology, discusses various salient aspects of the quality control and previews an example of downhole geochemical results..
