Survey Description


More than 1800 till samples were collected in northwestern Manitoba between 1983 and 1988.  The data are published in GSC Open File 2118.  Data from NTS 64C are also published in GSC Open File 1204.  Data from NTS 64F are also published in GSC Open File 1205.

These data are also part of a compilation, Geological Survey of Canada Open File 7064.

Data Description:

Paper report; data files on diskette.

Quantities Analysed:

<0.002 mm fraction by AAS after HNO3-HCl for 11 elements, by delayed neutron activation and fluorometry after HNO3 for U, and by colourimetry after HNO3-HClO4 for As.  <0.063 mm fraction by INAA for 34 elements; by fire assay and neutron activation for Au; heavy mineral fraction by fire assay and AAS for Au.

Geochem Maps Available:

Proportional symbol maps showing the dispersal of 11 elements.

Other Analyses:

carbonate (<0.063 mm by LECO).
