Survey Description

In 1976, lake sediments were collected in northeast Manitoba.  The data are published in GSC Open File 408.

In 2010, a subset of the samples was reanalysed by ICP-ES/MS and INAA and published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 6671/Manitoba Geological Survey Open File 2010-3, along with the original data from OF 408.

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