Northwestern Alberta till sampling survey carried out in 1996-1997

Project Description

Till sampling was carried out in 1996 and 1997 in northwestern Alberta.  The first objective of the project was to provide information on the surficial and Quaternary geology, including till petrology, geochemistry, diamond-indicator mineralogy, ice-flow directions and glacial-dispersion patterns.  The second objective was to prepare surficial geology maps.  Work on this project was suspended during the second of the three years originally planned due to redirection of staff.  The surficial geology and till geochemistry are published in Alberta Energy and Utilities Branch Earth Sciences Report 2000-12.
