Data Description:

Paper report with selected elements in data lists; complete digital data set released as MRD-44 (Miscellaneous Release-Data 44).

Quantities Analysed:

<0.063 mm fraction of till by INAA for 35 elements; by ICP-OES after aqua regia digestion for 25 elements.  <0.177 mm fraction of humus by INAA; by ICP-OES after aqua regia digestion for base metals.

Geochem Maps Available:

Proportional symbol maps showing dispersal of selected elements.

Other Analyses:

Heavy mineral concentrate for gold grains, kimberlite indicator minerals and metamorphic/magmatic massive sulphide indicator minerals.
