Survey Description


In 1994, till samples were collected in the Rush Lake-Opeepeesway Lake area of northern Ontario as part of a multi-year regional till sampling and surficial mapping program covering the Swayze Greenstone Belt.

Samples were collected at a regional scale from road cuts, trenches and hand-dug pits at an average sampling density of 1 sample per 4 km2<sup/>using a 2 km grid pattern.  At each site, samples of humus, B horizon and C horizon were collected lithological, mineralogical and/or geochemical analysis.  C horizon samples were processed for heavy minerals and pebble counts.

The following Ontario Geological Survey reports were published:
