S.D. Amor

St. John's, Newfoundland, April, 2013


The Geoscience Atlas of Newfoundland and Labrador incorporates a number of geochemical databases comprising analyses of lake sediment and water, till and rock. In conjunction with other Atlas layers and themes, which include bedrock and surficial geology, geophysics, mineral occurrences, and current and historic claims dispositions, the data can be used to identify regional geochemical patterns as well as targets for exploration. Regional data for lake sediment and water, and till, may be viewed in map form, and all data can be downloaded for subsequent import into Geographic Information Systems or other data-processing packages.
