Timiskaming area, Ontario-Quebec till and clay sampling survey, 1983-1989
Several techniques, including till geochemistry, mapping of surficial deposits, palynology of postglacial organic deposits and deglaciation geochronology were used to reconstruct the glacial history of Timiskaming. These investigations provide a better understanding of the sequence and relative importance of major ice movements and of their impact on prospecting methods in glaciated terrain. These systematic studies provide a framework for understanding the evolution of the Canadian landmass and for making rational land use decisions. The data are published in GSC Bulletin 476.
