Survey Description

This 1993 exploration program consisted of geological mapping and heavy mineral sampling of specific target areas.  These areas were identified by a detailed review of available data for the Yathkyed Lake area which is located approximately 750 km east of Yellowknife and 520 km north of Points North, Saskatchewan.  The samples were collected by Taiga Consultants Ltd. on behalf of Leeward Capital Corp. and Troymin Resources Ltd.

Rock samples were taken for analysis of indicator minerals.  Several till samples were collected from mud boils and eskers in areas where kimberlite pipes were expected.  These samples were sent to TerraMin Research Labs in Calgary, AB.

Samples have been SEM checked and data are available.

The data can be found in Nunavut Assessment Report 083220.
