Abstract

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) made a reconnaissance geochemical survey of the Cornplanter Roadless Area (fig. 1) to test for indistinct or unexposed mineral deposits that might be recognized by their geochemical halos or patterns formed by the distribution of trace elements. Lesure, assisted by Andrew E. Grosz, collected 22 stream-sediment, 63 soil, and 23 rock samples from within and dear the study area during October 1980. All samples were analyzed for 31 elements using semi-quantitative spectrographic methods by Day in USGS laboratories, Denver, Colo. (table 1). In addition, the samples were also analyzed for zinc by means of an atomic absorption method by B.F. Arbogast and W.C. Martin, USGS laboratories, Denver Colo. J.T. Hanley and P.G. Schruben formatted the analytical data by computer methods for table 1.
