Survey Description


Till samples were collected at 110 sites in the Patterson Island area, Reindeer Lake, northeast Saskatchewan.  They were spaced 1 to 2 km where accessibility was good.  Bulk till samples (~10 kg) were taken where possible from the C-horizon in pits hand dug to an average depth of 1 m.  These samples will be submitted for kimberlite and base metal indicator minerals.  A 1 kg sample was also collected from each pit for geochemical and textural analyses.  A summary of the work can be found in Saskatchewan Geological Survey Summary of Investigations 2003, Miscellaneous Report 2003-4.2.

Data Description:

Digital report on CD and web.

Quantities Analysed:

Sample analyses in progress.  Till samples will be analysed for major and trace elements plus Au.  Pt and Pd on some samples.

Geochem Maps Available:

None.

Other Analyses:

Kimberlite and base metal indicator minerals; lithology counts on pebbles from the 6-10 mm fraction of till; gold and platinum grain counts.
