Survey Description

In 2008, till samples were collected in the Sambaa K'e Candidate Protected Area in southwestern Northwest Territories.  The work was part of a non-renewable resource assessment of minerals.  The samples were processed for kimberlite indicator minerals (KIM), magmatic/metamorphosed massive sulphide indicator minerals (MMSIM) and gold grains.

The data are published in Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO) NWT Open File 2010-08.
