Bundle Description

Indicator mineral grains picked by I and M Morrison of Delta BC from Point Lake (NTS 86H) samples collected in 1994 were analysed by electron microprobe with the GARNET routine at the GSC to confirm their mineral identities.

These data are published in GSC Open File 3341. A summary of the GARNET routine can be found in Appendix 3 of Open File 3341.
