Precambrian Geology – Northeastern Ontario

Preliminary Map P.3821
Precambrian Geology of Cochrane and Borden Townships, Kapuskasing Structural Zone, Wawa–Abitibi Terrane; by M. Duguet and N. Szumylo, scale 1:20 000, colour. Geological, geochemical and geophysical data available as Miscellaneous Release—Data 365 (see below). $17.85.

Miscellaneous Release—Data 365
Geological, Geochemical, Geophysical and Petrographic Data Related to the Cochrane and Borden Townships Area, Kapuskasing Structural Zone, Wawa–Abitibi Terrane; by M. Duguet. This digital data release contains field photographs and petrographic images, and whole-rock geochemical, petrographic, magnetic susceptibility and scintillometer data collected as part of 1:20 000 scale bedrock geology mapping of Cochrane and Borden townships (Borden Lake area) during the summer of 2016. Also included are presentations and a previously published article related to the project. This release comprises 141 field photographs (as .jpg files), 13 thin section scans (as .jpg files), 98 scanning electron microscope (SEM) (.bmp) images and 43 associated thermobarometric (.txt) program files, 3 Microsoft® Excel® 2013 (.xlsx) workbook files and 8 documents in portable document format (.pdf). These data augment Preliminary Map P.3821, Precambrian Geology of Cochrane and Borden Townships, Kapuskasing Structural Zone, Wawa–Abitibi Terrane; the geological legend for the map is also provided. The data are available on 1 DVD. $25.00.

Precambrian Geology – Northwestern Ontario

Miscellaneous Release—Data 370
Geochemical Analyses of Rocks in the Central Wabigoon Superterrane, Northwestern Ontario; by K.E. Bjorkman and P. Hollings. This digital data release consists of brief sample descriptions, location data and whole rock analytical data for 282 rock samples collected as part of the PhD thesis by the senior author (K.E. Bjorkman) at the University of Western Australia in 2017. The descriptions and data are provided as 1 Microsoft® Excel® 2013 (.xlsx) workbook (with 4 worksheets for sample descriptions and locations; major element data; trace element data; and abbreviations), and 2 portable document format (.pdf) files (analytical quality-control data; and readme with a summary of results). The data are available on 1 CD. $20.00.

Groundwater Studies

Groundwater Resources Study 17
Geospatial Distribution of Selected Chemical, Bacteriological and Gas Parameters Related to Groundwater in Southern Ontario; by L.M. Colgrove and S.M. Hamilton. This digital data release comprises a report describing a study that uses select chemical, bacteriological and gas parameters from the Ontario Geological Survey Ambient Groundwater Geochemistry database to spatially map discrete areas of southern Ontario where groundwater has a natural tendency toward elevated concentrations of specific geochemical and bacteriological constituents. The chemical parameters included are arsenic, barium, boron, fluoride, nuisance gases (methane, hydrogen sulphide, hypoxic gas), iodide, nitrate, chloride, selenium and uranium. The report also includes a set of bacteriological maps. For each parameter, individual maps convey 1) geological associations, 2) chemical concentration distribution and 3) a simplified map showing discreet regions with elevated concentrations. Geological features and geochemical mechanisms controlling regional hydrochemical trends are briefly discussed. The report is provided as 1 portable document format (.pdf) file. Available on 1 CD. $20.00.
