Survey Description


In 1997, 39 stream sediment samples were collected in west-central Manitoba from sand bars in streams flowing from the Porcupine Hills.  Five other samples were collected sometime between 1997 and 2000:

 

Type of Sediment Sediment Provenance Number of Samples
salt spring sediment salt spring east of the Porcupine Hills 1
stream sediment sand bars within streams on the flanks of Duck Mountain 2
gravel base of a deep gravel pit SE of Duck Mountain 1
beach sand garnet-rich beach sand on Clearwater Lake 1

The kimberlite indicator mineral results are published in Manitoba Industry, Trade and Mines Open File Report 2001-3.

Follow-up work was carried out in 2002 as detailed below:

 

Type of Sediment Sediment Provenance Number of Samples
stream sediment sand bars within streams flowing from the Porcupine Hills 19
stream sediment Red Deer River, SK 1
samples prepared from outcrop Swan River Formation 2
beach sand garnet-rich beach sand on Clearwater Lake 1

The kimberlite indicator mineral results are published in Manitoba Industry, Trade and Mines, Report of Activities 2002 (GS-34).
