GeoFile 2005-11 describes analytical data for 196 bedrock samples collected during previous geological mapping and till geochemical surveys in the Barriere Lakes-Adams Plateau area.  The samples were analyzed for trace elements by neutron activation and aqua regia digestion-inductively coupled argon plasma emission spectrometry (ICPES) and major oxides by lithium metaborate fusion- ICPMS.  Bedrock geology of the area and the methods used in the analysis are briefly described.  Analytical results are listed with sample location coordinates and sample descriptions in Excel, text and dbase formats.
