St. John's, Newfoundland, April, 2009


The report provides all analytical data, and selected field data, obtained from the twelve detailed-scale lake-sediment and lake-water surveys conducted in Labrador by the Newfoundland and Labrador Geological Survey during the period 1978 to 2005. About 6300 samples were collected at an average site density of one per 4-5 km2. By comparison, regional lake data have a site density of approximately one per 15 km2. These data are particularly suitable for displaying in a geographic information system or for performing statistical analyses.

Although most of these data have been released previously as individual reports by survey, there are also many new data provided, particularly for some of the early surveys.
