Stream Sediment Geochemistry, Southern Alberta Rift (GIS data, point features)

Author(s) Olson, R.A. Dufresne, M.B. Date 2011-07-19

This data set is a geographic information systems (GIS) version of part of the results of Canada-Alberta Mineral Development Agreement project 'Geological mapping, prospecting and sampling of the Southern Alberta Rift.' The data represent elemental analyses of 415 stream sediment samples collected from the study area in 1992. Analytes include: Ag, Cd, Cu, Pb, and Zn by atomic absorption; Ag, As, Au, Ba, Br, Ce, Co, Cr, Cs, Eu, Fe, Hf, Ir, La, Lu, Mo, Na, Ni, Rb, Sb, Sc, Se, Sm, Sn, Ta, Tb, Te, Th, U, W, Yb, Zn, and Zr by neutron activation; and Hg by cold vapour extraction/atomic absorption. Results show that some of the stream sediments contain higher concentrations of mineral elements than normal.
