Survey Description


In May 2007, thirteen till samples were collected for geochemistry and indicator minerals at 12 sites around the NICO Au-Co-Bi deposit, Great Bear magmatic zone, central Northwest Territories.  A total of 27 bedrock samples were also collected for indicator minerals.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 6723.
