Northwestern Manitoba till sampling surveys, 1983-1988

Project Description

In 1983 the Geological Survey of Canada began a program of systematic till sampling and surficial geological mapping in northwestern Manitoba.  The primary objective of the sampling was to map variations in chemical and mineralogical components of till that may be related to bedrock mineralization as an aid to mineral exploration within the area.  The following areas were sampled:
