Because of war, Francis I didn't send another expedition till 1541. He had Jean-Francois de Roberval go to establish a colony in the land discovered by Cartier, who was Jean's assistant. Cartier went first, getting to Quebec on August 23. Roberval was delayed by a year. http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/lhn-nhs/qc/cartierbrebeuf/natcul/natcul2/~/media/lhn-nhs/qc/cartierbrebeuf/carte-3evoyage-cartier-1541-42.ashx?w=580&h=340&as=1 That winter Cartier couldn't control his men so the locals got mad again, In the spring, before Roberval arrived, Cartier deserted the base and sailed back to France with barrels of what he though was valuable gold and other minerals. In Newfoundland, he met Roberval, who told him to go back to Quebec. During the night, Cartier continued back to France. The gold he brought back was valueless. Roberval didn't have much success either, coming back to France after one winter.
