Survey Description

Approximately 50 till samples were collected in 1986 in the Osik Lake area, central Manitoba.  Sampling was carried out in the presumed up-ice direction northeast of sites along highway 391 where ultramafic pebbles and cobbles were found exposed in road cuts along a 10 km stretch of the highway.  A summary of the work can be found in Geological Survey of Canada Current Research, Paper 88-1C.

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

Data Description:

Paper report.

Quantities Analysed:

<0.002 mm fraction of till and sand-sized heavy mineral fraction of till analysed for ultramafic indicator trace elements.  No analytical methods are given.

Geochem Maps Available:

Symbol map of percentage of ultramafic pebbles in till.  Profile of trace metal concentration in till of Osik Lake dispersal train.

Other Analyses:

Trace elements and iron in rocks from till.
