GSC-NC-2009-Southampton Island Till, Glacio-fluvial and Alluvial samples: ODM HMC and grain separation and IM picking

Type: lab data

Bundle Description

135 till, 12 glaciofluvial and 8 alluvial samples collected in 2007 from Southampton Island (NTS45N, 46 A,B,C,F,G) were picked for gold grains by Overburden Drilling Management, Ottawa, Ontario and processed for heavy mineral concentrates (HMC). Heavy mineral concentrates were picked for kimberlite indicator minerals (KIM) and metamorphosed massive sulphide indicator minerals (MMSIM).

The data are published in GSC Open File 6078.

Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: Overburden Drilling Management, Ottawa, Ontario (ODM)

Name: ODM IM processing (standard KIM and MMSIM procedure) (more)

ODM indicator mineral processing.  The procedure corresponds to the standard ODM flow chart.  The 100 grain count is absent.

Analytical Suites:

1  ODM HMC grain separation
2  ODM VG count
3  ODM MMSIM count ( HMC 0.25-0.5 mm fraction )
