47 till samples from the Point Lake mapsheet (NTS 86H) were processed by Canamera Geological Services, North Vancouver, BC, to obtain heavy mineral separates. Samples were screened into two grain size fractions (0.25-0.5 mm and 0.5-1 mm). Each fraction was then separated into magnetic/paramagnetic and non-magnetic fractions using a Permaroll separator. The magnetic/paramagnetic fraction was then separated into light and heavy fractions using a Magstream separator.
The 47 samples were then sent to Diamond Indicator Processing of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The samples were run through a magnetic separator to remove the magnetite, and then put through a heavy liquid separation using methyl iodide diluted with acetone (S.G 3.2).
Samples were collected in 1994 and processed in 1995. Sample processing weights are reported in Appendix 2 of GSC Open File 3341. Data are reported only for the 0.25-0.5 mm size fraction.
