Northern Ontario Spider 3 survey carried out in 1996

Project Description

In the summer of 1996, a regional helicopter-supported heavy mineral-geochemical survey was carried out over a 13 000 km2 region of northern Ontario.  This survey utilized heavy mineral/geochemical sampling combined with airborne geophysical surveys to delineate areas favourable for kimberlite exploration.  This project is a joint venture between the Ontario Geological Survey and the private sector (KWG Resources) and is intended to provide the public with new information that will augment past and future projects carried out by both the OGS and the private sector.  The data are published in Ontario Geological Survey Open File Report 6097.
