Survey Description


Approximately 360 basal till samples were collected in the Anvil district, central Yukon from several locations.  Till samples were obtained by hand digging to a depth averaging 60 – 100 cm and weighed approximately 5-10 kg.

In 1998, 140 samples were collected in the Rose Creek valley, northwest of the Faro deposit.  Samples were collected from a 3 km by 4 km grid and were spaced every 200 m and the spacing between lines progressed from 200 m to 500 m over 13 lines total.  Till was also sampled from exposures in the Faro, Grum and Vangorda open pits.

Regional till sampling was carried out during 1998 and 1999 in three areas: at the southeast end of the Swim basin, north of Mount Mye and in the Anvil Creek valley.

The data are published in Indian and Northern Affairs Canada Bulletin 11.
