Canadian Geochemical Surveys
Entry ID: Canada_GSC_GeoChemData


Summary
Abstract: This database contains a catalogue of geochemical surveys conducted by the
Geological Survey of Canada and its Provincial counterparts. The catalogue
currently contains about 500 entries. This represents an estimated 70% of the
GSC's data holdings and something less than 50% of the Provincial data
holdings. For many surveys, the raw geochemical data are available for
download.To compile and make available, basic scientific data on the chemical
composition of natural materials across Canada.

These data are used by environmental scientists and mineral exploration
companies. Anomalous chemical compositions may be indicative of either natural
phenomena (typically an effect of the local geology) or anthropogenic
disturbance.
