Survey Description

In 1975, lake sediments were collected in the Kasmere Lake area, northern Manitoba.  The data are published in GSC Open File 322.  Data for 148 sites were not published.

In 2010, a subset of the samples was reanalysed by ICP-ES/MS and published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 7309/Manitoba Geological Survey Open File 2013-2, along with the original data from OF 322.

This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.
