Survey Description


In July 2009, 64 till and 22 bedrock samples were collected in the vicinity of the Izok Lake VMS deposit, Nunavut and Northwest Territories.  The till samples were collected up-ice, proximal to and at varying distances up to 8 km down-ice of the deposit.  In 2010, an additional 11 till samples were collected south and northwest of the deposit to further document the distribution of specific indicator minerals found in the 2009 till samples.
