Survey Description

In 2004, 33 humus samples were collected in the area of the Mayville Igneous Complex, southeast Manitoba.  Seven more humus samples were collected in 2005.  Samples were analysed for Pt, Pd and Au to investigate their usefulness as pathfinders to Ni–Cu–platinum group element (PGE) sulphide mineralization that is known to occur in rocks underlying this area.

The data are published in Manitoba Industry, Economic Development and Mines Open File Report OF2006-1.
