This Open File release consists of whole-rock geochemistry of 81 samples collected in western Labrador in 2017. The sample locations are located in the eastern portion of the Labrador Trough (NTS map areas 23I/12, 13, 23J/16, 23O/01 and 02), and were sampled in the first year of a multi-year project investigating the metallurgy and mineral potential of the region. The samples represent Montagnais Gabbro sills and associated igneous rocks, as well as sulphide-bearing sedimentary rocks which the gabbro sills were intruded into. These gabbro sills have potential to host Ni–Cu–PGE deposits, and these data forms part of an ongoing B.Sc. (Hons.) thesis by Andrew Smith at Memorial University.
