Survey Description


Synthesis of geochemical data from 300 till samples from 171 reverse circulation holes drilled in the Kirkland Lake area in 1979, 1980, 1981, and 1982. (OGS Open Files 5335, 5356, 5355, 5394, 5395, 5456 and 5506).  The report contains summary statistics, frequency histograms, probability plots and proportional circle maps for the till and bedrock data and graphic logs and geochemical data for <0.063 mm fraction, fine and coarse non-magnetic heavy mineral fractions.  The data are published in Ontario Geological Survey Open File Report 5737.

Data Description:

Paper report; data lists on diskette as MRD-4 (Miscellaneous Release – Data 4).

Quantities Analysed:

None.

Geochem Maps Available:

Proportional symbol maps showing regional dispersal of elements; graphic logs and geochemical data for non-magnetic heavy mineral fractions -  (coarse (1.600-0.125 mm) and fine (<0.125 mm).
