This report releases 576 runs of whole-rock geochemical and assay results of 574 samples from the gold-bearing mineralized zones of the Amaruq orogenic gold deposit (Kivalliq, Nunavut, Canada). Most samples were collected during the 2016, 2017 and 2018 field seasons as part of a PhD study by the senior author (Valette, 2018) at the Université du Québec à Montréal. Some samples collected prior to the senior author study were provided by P. Mercier-Langevin. Analytical results from previous work done at the GSC is also included in this open file. Research on gold-bearing mineralized zones of the Amaruq deposit was conducted under the Gold project under the System Controls on Gold Through Space and Time (source to trap) theme. The geochemical data is presented in a format easily importable in a geographic information system (GIS). Samples were collected from drill core, outcrops and mine workings to document host units, the alteration zones, and the ore. Preliminary interpretations of the deposit are presented in Grondin LeBlanc et al. (2017), Lauzon et al. (2017, 2020), Mercier- Langevin et al. (2017b, 2018), and Valette et al. (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020). Sample information and geochemical results are presented in Appendices 1 and 2 (worksheet "Results") respectively. The results worksheet combines 8 reports produced between 2015 and 2018.
