Open File NFLD/3273 - Till Geochemistry of Eastern Pond and Miguels Lake (NTS Map Areas 2D/11, 12), Jeddore Lake (NTS Map Areas 1M/13, 2D/04 and 12A/01) and Surrounding Areas

Analytical results for 779 routine <180 micron till samples from south-central Newfoundland are released, along with the results of heavy-mineral examination of eight bulk till samples.

No interpretation or plotting of the geochemical data have been done. Results of the heavy-mineral examination of the bulk till samples indicate that chromite persists for at least 40 km down-ice from the Chrome Pond occurrence, and that the grain count decreases exponentially with increased distance. One gold-bearing sample was collected within a previously defined dispersion train that is believed to be associated with the Pipestone Pond gold occurrence.
