Digital Data 2021-0011
This digital data release includes the results of whole-rock major and trace element geochemical analyses of plutonic and metamorphic rock samples from the Taltson magmatic zone of the Canadian Shield of northeastern Alberta. The samples are part of the AGS collection of Alberta Precambrian shield rocks created by the late John Godfrey in the 1970s. A selection of samples from this collection was analyzed to obtain whole-rock composition for the detection of minerals of economic interest and obtain a complete chemical characterization. Analytical techniques included spot measurements with a handheld, portable X-ray fluorescence analyzer as well as standard laboratory whole-rock geochemical analysis methods.
