Till, Surficial drill core
Till sampling survey, NTS 42A, B, G, H, J, Timmins area, northeastern Ontario, 1987-1988.
(requires an Internet connection)
During the field seasons of 1987 and 1988, a total of 70 intact overburden cores were drilled with a Rotasonic drill in an area between Timmins north to Smoky Falls, northeastern Ontario. Core samples were grouped into 3 categories: diamicton; well sorted, fine-grained sediments (predominantly lacustrine); and, sorted sand and gravel.
The diamictons were processed to provide clay, silt+clay, heavy mineral and pebble fractions for geochemical and lithological analyses. Fine-grained sediments were processed to provide clay and silt+clay fractions for geochemical analysis.
The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 2278.
