Survey Description

From June 20 to September 26, 1992, a regional esker and stream sediment sampling survey took place on the DIASYN property located approximately 150 km northeast of the Lupin Mine property on NTS sheets 76C/13, 14, 15, and 76F/2, Nunavut and Northwest Territories.

A total of 83 samples were collected by Kennecott Canada Inc. on behalf of Totem Health Sciences Inc, and sent to OREX Labs in Vancouver, BC for processing.  The samples were taken concurrently with a geophysical airborne survey and were used to follow up anomalous data.  The till samples were collected along fences perpendicular to ice direction, located down-ice from clusters of geophysical features.

The samples have been SEM checked and data are available.
