Soil, Till, Indicator minerals
Soil and till sampling survey, NTS 52H/4, Buck Lake property, northwestern Ontario, 2000.
(requires an Internet connection)
28 humus, 28 B-horizon soil and 18 till samples were collected on the Buck Lake property in 2000. Samples were collected along 2 separate lines. One line was parallel to ice flow direction with samples collected at 25 m intervals up and down-ice of known mineralization. The data are published in Ontario Geological Survey Open File Report 6054.
Paper report with data lists. Digital data available separately as MRD-71 (Miscellaneous Release-Data 71).
<0.177 mm fraction of humus and <0.063 mm fraction of till by ICP-AES for 25 elements; by ICP-AES-FA for Au, Pd, and Pt; and ICP-MS for 51 elements.
