Survey Description

During the summers of 1993 and 1994, Monopros Limited conducted a helicopter-supported exploration program for kimberlites on the ARM 1, GHOST and TAK 1 claims.  The program covered NTS sheets 85O/16, 86B/1, and 86I/1 in Northwest Territories and western Nunavut.

A total of 17 till samples and one glacialfluvial sediment sample was collected.  They were processed at the DeBeers Laboratory in Grande Prairie, AB.

The samples have been SEM checked, however the data were not available at the time of the report.

A summary of the work can be found in Nunavut Assessment Report 083385.
