Open File LAB/1578 - Major- and Trace-Element Geochemical Data from the Pants Lake Intrusions and Spatially Associated Rock Units, Central Labrador (NTS 13M and 13N)

St. John's, Newfoundland, October, 2012


During the summers of 1996, 1997 and 1998, extensive field work was carried out in Labrador under the Labrador Nickel Project. The objectives of this project were to document examples of magmatic sulphide mineralization discovered in the wake of the Voisey's Bay discovery, and to understand the distribution of, and controls upon, such mineralization. The area around Pants Lake in central Labrador was one of the main areas of interest for mineral exploration and was also an important focus for the Labrador Nickel Project. The geology and geochemistry of the Pants Lake area were discussed in Current Research reports (Kerr, 1999; Kerr et al., (2001), and in a paper published in American Journal of Science (Kerr, 2003). A Geological Survey report on the Pants Lake intrusions and their magmatic sulphide mineralization has recently been released (Kerr, 2012). This open file contains the geochemical data discussed and summarized in this final report and earlier publications. Users should note that this open file is not intended as an independant document, and that the report by Kerr (2012) should be consulted if these data are to be used and interpreted.
