Southeastern Yukon till sampling survey, 1987
The discovery of a Tertiary epithermal gold-silver prospect in the Tintina Trench, Yukon Territory, indicates potential for similar mineralization elsewhere along this structurally controlled depression. A drift prospecting study was initiated in the summer of 1987 to help determine if a relationship between placer gold, ice-flow direction and Tertiary volcanic rocks existed. The project consisted of a Quaternary geology study including stratigraphy, identification of ice flow and the glacial dispersal of rock fragments as well as till geochemistry. Samples weighed from 3 to 5 kg each. The data are found in Carleton University M.Sc. thesis (Plouffe, 1989).
