St. John's, Newfoundland, May, 2014


This report provides the geochemical data for the Fogo map area (NTS map area 2E/09) and supplements a multiyear till-geochemistry and surficial-mapping program conducted in northeastern Newfoundland (Brushett, 2012), commenced in 2009. Geochemical data for 58 elements, from 55 BC- or C-horizon till samples, are presented and include the results of analyses by ICP-OES for aluminum, arsenic, barium, beryllium, cadmium, calcium, cerium, chromium, cobalt, copper, dysprosium, iron, lanthanum, lead, lithium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, niobium, phosphorus, potassium, scandium, sodium, strontium, titanium, vanadium, yttrium, zinc and zirconium; by INAA for antimony, arsenic, barium, bromine, calcium, cerium, cesium, chromium, cobalt, europium, gold, iron, hafnium, iridium, lanthanum, lutetium, mercury, molybdenum, nickel, neodymium, rubidium, scandium, samarium, selenium, silver, sodium, strontium, tantalum, tin, terbium, thorium, tungsten, uranium, ytterbium, zinc and zirconium. A complete data listing, field duplicate data, and individual element distribution maps, on a bedrock geology base map, are also provided.
