Survey Description


In 2005 and 2006, a total of 120 till samples were collected along the north part of the Thompson Nickel Belt, in central Manitoba, including areas west and east of the belt.  Sites included mine properties, road cuts, borrow pits, river sections and backhoe trenches at varying distances down-ice from the Thompson and Pipe mines.  The data are published as follows:

 

GSC Open File Sample Type Data
6005 till geochemistry
6766 bedrock indicator minerals
7200 till indicator minerals
7310 till, bedrock iron oxide compositions

 

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