Shebandowan Greenstone Belt, northwestern Ontario till and soil sampling surveys, 1998 and 1999
Although there are presently no operating mines within the Shebandowan greenstone belt of northwestern Ontario, the wide distribution of a large variety of mineral occurrences and deposit types suggests that there is excellent potential for further mineral discoveries. The Ontario Geological Survey of Ontario initiated a two year program of Quaternary geology and drift geochemistry to further evaluate the mineral resource potential of the region. Till and humus sampling was carried out in 1998 in the eastern part of the Shebandowan greenstone belt and in 1999 till sampling was carried out in the western part of the belt. The data are published in Ontario Geological Survey Open File Reports 5993 (eastern part) and 6012 (western part).
