Southeastern Manitoba till sand indicator mineral reconnaissance project, 1991-92 and 1997-98.

Project Description

Till geochemical and indicator mineral reconnaissance to support mineral exploration and other applications was conducted by the Geological Survey of Canada in 1991-1992 and the Manitoba Geological Survey in 1997-1998.  The project comprised one phase of overburden drilling and two phases of surface till sampling in the area south of 51° N and east of 98° W in southeastern Manitoba.  The drilling was supported by the Canada-Manitoba partnership Agreement on Mineral Development.  The two phases of surface till sampling were funded by the National Geoscience Mapping Program (NATMAP).
