NODA Project, Manitouwadge-Hornepayne area, 1991-1992

Project Description

In 1991 and 1992, the Geological Survey of Canada carried out a study of surficial sediments in the Manitouwadge-Hornepayne area, northern Ontario as part of the Northern Ontario Development Agreement (NODA).  The purpose of the project was to aid and stimulate mineral exploration activities in the region.

The first phase of the project involved reconnaissance till sampling and some detailed work in the vicinity of the Manitouwadge greenstone belt.  During the second phase, samples from geochemical orientation surveys carried out in 1968 were reanalyzed.

The following Geological Survey of Canada reports have been published:


Year of Sampling GSC Publication Comments
1991 Open File 2616 geochem, pebble counts, proportional symbol maps (selected elements)
1992 Open File 2933 geochem, pebble counts, gold grain data, KIM data
1968 Open File 3562 reanalyses of previously collected samples
1991, 1992, 1968 Open File 3790 mercury data
