Miscellaneous Release—Data 372
Geological, Geochemical and Geophysical Data Related to the Eabamet Lake Area, Fort Hope–Miminiska Greenstone Belt, Northwestern Ontario; by B. Azar. This digital data release consists of geochemical data, magnetic susceptibility data, geological information, structural data and selected field photographs for the Fort Hope greenstone belt in the Eabamet Lake area, collected during the 2015 and 2016 field seasons. It includes whole-rock geochemistry (major element, trace element, rare earth element) and assay data, quality control data and field notes. These data are associated with Preliminary Maps P.3824 and P.3825, Precambrian Geology of the Eabamet Lake Area, Fort Hope–Miminiska Greenstone Belt (North and South sheets, respectively). The marginal notes and the geological legend (as 2 portable document format (.pdf) files) for these Preliminary Maps are also provided, as well as other documents related to the project. Location data are provided in the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) projection and grid system, Zone 16, North American Datum 1983 (NAD83). This release consists of 4 Microsoft® Excel® 2016 (.xlsx) files, 147 photographs (.jpg format files), and 6 portable document format (.pdf) files. The data are available on 1 CD. $20.00.

Surficial Geochemistry

Miscellaneous Release—Data 373
McFaulds Lake (“Ring of Fire”) Area Lake Sediment and Water Geochemistry, Northern Ontario; by L.A. Handley and R.D. Dyer. This digital data release provides deep and shallow lake sediment geochemical data and lake water geochemical data, including quality control data, collected from a total of 1323 sites in the McFaulds Lake area in northern Ontario, during the summers of 2011, 2012 and 2013. The sediment samples were analyzed for loss on ignition (LOI); and by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP–OES), inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP–MS); and by instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA, for deep sediments only). Lake water samples were analyzed by ICP–OES, ICP–MS and ion chromatography (IC). Quality control data consist of the results from the analysis of duplicate pairs and certified reference materials and are included in this release. Lake water measurements of temperature, pH and conductivity were determined in situ. All location information is presented as Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) co-ordinates using North American Datum 1983 (NAD83) in Zone 16. Data are available as 24 Microsoft® Excel® 2016 (.xlsx) files and are accompanied by supporting documentation in portable document format (.pdf). The data are available on 1 CD. $20.00.

Miscellaneous Release—Data 371
Ontario Specific Gravity Data for Bedrock Samples Acquired from 1970 to 2014; by D.R.B. Rainsford, A. Carter-McAuslan and L.C. Ashick-Stinson. This digital data release contains specific gravity data for rock samples collected by Ontario Geological Survey staff from across Ontario between 1970 and 2014. The majority of the more than 26 000 geolocated data records were obtained from specific gravity measurements of Archean rocks, with smaller populations of data from Proterozoic and Paleozoic eras. The data are provided as 1 Microsoft® Excel® 2013 (.xlsx) workbook file, 1 generic comma-separated values (.csv) file and a set of GIS-compatible shape files. Explanatory notes, describing specific gravity measurements, and the data compilation, processing and sources, are provided as a portable document format (.pdf) file. The data are available on 1 CD. $20.00.
