Survey Description


In 2001, seven exposed sections along the Stupart and Lower Hayes rivers were selected for detailed investigation.  Till samples were collected at 2 or 3 m intervals in each of the sections.  At each sampling interval, an 11 L sample was collected for kimberlite indicator mineral and pebble analyses and a 2 kg sample for geochemical analysis.  In total, 69 till and two coarse sand samples were collected from the seven sections.

The data are published in Manitoba Industry, Trade and Mines, Geoscientific Paper GP2002-1.
