Survey Description


Placer gold occurrences have been reported from Quaternary sand and gravel deposits in the Manigotagan area, eastern Manitoba.  In 1986, detailed sampling was undertaken in the area and a total of 55 samples were collected at 3 sites.  The sampling medium was not stated.

In 1987, 22 regional samples (9 littoral sand and 13 till samples) were collected from 21 sites in the English Brook area, located up-ice from the 1986 sampling area.  Detailed sampling was carried out near the placer occurrence where an additional 62 sand samples were collected from 21 backhoe pits.

A summary of the work can be found in Manitoba Energy and Mines, Report of Activities 1986 and 1987.
