(requires an Internet connection)
In 1992, till samples were collected in the Foleyet area of northern Ontario as part of a multi-year regional till sampling and surficial mapping program covering the Swayze Greenstone Belt.
A total of 135 till samples were collected at a regional scale at an average sampling density of 1 sample per 7.5 km2. Samples were collected from roadcuts, borrow pits and metre deep hand-dug pits. At each site, samples of B horizon, C horizon and humus were collected.
Detailed sampling was carried out at the site of the Joburke gold mine. A total of 55 sites were sampled extending approximately l km down-ice and 400 m up-ice from the ore zone.
