(requires an Internet connection)
During the summer of 1988, ground traversing was conducted in the Ferguson Lake area, Nunavut for detailed sampling of gossan (from trenches) and till. Some rock samples were also collected. The data have not been published.
Shallow surface till samples (8 to 10 kg) from approximately 1 m depth were collected from hand-dug pits in mud boils.
