The Linden Grove area soil survey is a westward expansion of the 1971 and 1991 USGS soil geochemistry study areas near and around Lake Vermilion in western st. Louis and eastern Itasca counties. The primary objective is to sample B horizon soil samples and outcrop samples in the proposed area over or adjacent to greenstone units for geochemical analysis. 792 samples were collected in portions of 13 7.5 minute USGS quadrangles (see tables 1 & 2) covering approximately 450 square miles. Henry Alminas (USGS) supervised the overall project with fieldwork being done by Dale Cartwright (DNR) and Pat Geiselman (DNR) and analysis by J. B. McHugh (USGS).
