Survey Description


216 C-horizon till samples were collected along the western extension of the Larder Lake-Cadillac Break, Matachewan area, northeastern Ontario in 1996 as part of a regional and property-scale sampling survey.  The regional samples were collected at a density of just under 1 sample per 2 km2.  The data are published in Ontario Geological Survey Open File Report 5957.

Data Description:

Paper report with partial data lists.  Complete digital data released as MRD-29 (Miscellaneous Release-Data 29).

Quantities Analysed:

<0.063 mm fraction by INAA for 35 elements; by ICP-MS after aqua regia digestion for approximately 50 elements.

Geochem Maps Available:

Maps showing regional and property-scale distribution of Au, As, and Sb in till.

Other Analyses:
