GSC-NC-2008 and AB EUB NW Alberta, NTS 84L and M; Till and Glaciofluvial Sediments: ODM HMC and grain separation and IM picking

Type: lab data



Bundle Description

19 till and glaciofluvial sediment samples collected in 2005 and one spiked control sample from Northwest AB (NTS 84L and M) 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 5692.

Analytical Package Description

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

Name: ODM HMC processing and Indicator Mineral Identification, with 100 grain count (more)

Overburden Drilling Management indicator mineral processing. Concentrates are picked for indicator minerals (KIM and MMSIM) and the 0.25-0.5 mm fraction is subjected to 100 grain count following the indicator mineral count.
