Survey Description


During the summer of 1988, helicopter-supported reconnaissance level till sampling and centre-lake sediment sampling were carried out a density of 1 sample per 9 km2 in the Contwoyto Lake area, Nunavut.  Ground traversing was also conducted for detailed till sampling on the Amwood, CTL, Dune, P-1, OP and SB-1 grids.  The data have not been published.

Sampling Procedure

Shallow surface till samples (8 to 10 kg) from approximately 1 m depth were collected from hand-dug pits in mud boils.
