Analytical Sample Bundle Metadata


GSC-NC-2000-Northeastern Manitoba and NTS 53 and 63 Till: ODM HMC separation, IM and MMSIM counts, VG grain counts < 2 mm

Type: lab data

Bundle Description

78 till samples collected in 2004 from Northeastern Manitoba and NTS 53 and 63 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 3449.
