Southern Melville Peninsula till project, 1990-1991

Project Description

Field mapping and till sampling began in 1990 in Southern Melville Peninsula.  The geochemical data released characterizes the composition of glacial materials and establishes regional background concentrations of selected trace and minor elements for mineral exploration and environmental baseline studies.  The data are published in GSC Open File 3091 and GSC Bulletin 561.

The samples were analysed by INAA in 2003.  A final report including the new INAA data can be found in GSC Open File 4636.
