St. John's, Newfoundland, July, 2017


This database consists of whole-rock lithogeochemical data from samples of volcanic rocks collected on the Bonavista Peninsula of northeastern Newfoundland (NTS map areas 2C/05, 06, 11 and the southeast corner of 2C/12). The regional geology is discussed in reports by O’Brien (1994), Normore (2010, 2011), and Mills (2014). A discussion of lithogeochemical results for 22 of the mafic volcanic rocks is provided in Mills and Sandeman (2015). The rock samples were collected from the Bonavista Peninsula by L. Normore (during 2009, 2010), A.J. Mills (during 2013, 2014, 2015) and J. Wilson (during 2015). Details of the analytical methods used are provided by Finch (1998) and Mills and Sandeman (2015).
