Open File 001M/13/0872 - Geochemical Data from the Baie D'Espoir Group, St. Alban's Map Sheet, South Coast of Newfoundland (NTS Map Area 1M/13)

St. John's, Newfoundland, January, 2017


This Open File release consists of whole-rock geochemistry data from 30 samples collected from the Baie D’Espoir Group, around St. Alban’s, on the south coast of Newfoundland. The samples are part of a bedrock mapping study undertaken between June and August 2016. Samples were collected from sulphide-bearing, structurally controlled quartz veins and the surrounding altered host rocks. Several assays from known and previously unknown mineralized zones indicate elevated gold (Au), silver (Ag), antimony (Sb), and arsenic (As) contents in some of the sampled quartz veins, locally together with elevated base metal (Cu, Pb, Zn) contents.
