Till, Indicator minerals, Surficial drill core
Till sampling survey and overburden drilling, NTS 62H, 52E, southeastern Manitoba, 1991-1992.
(requires an Internet connection)
A total of 465 till samples were collected in southeastern Manitoba over the drift-covered rocks of the Wabigoon Belt in 1991 and 1992. 297 samples were from drill holes, 142 from surface sites and 26 from river sections. A total of 195 sand samples were also taken from the drill core. The data are published in GSC Open File 2750.
Report and data on diskette.
<0.063mm fraction of till matrix by INAA for 35 elements and by nitric-aqua-regia-ICP for 32 elements; XRF analyses of bedrock from drill holes.
Geochem Maps Available:
<0.063 mm carbonate (Chittick); pebble lithology; gold grain counts; kimberlite indicator mineral frequency and chemistry; geochemical analyses of heavy mineral concentrates (INAA and nitric-aqua-regia-ICP).
