Between July 2nd, 1996, and July 25th, 1997, 833 till, glaciofluvial and stream sediment samples were collected on the Victoria Island Property in west-central Nunavut. The property is located about 275 km north-west of the community of Cambridge Bay. Sampling was carried out on NTS sheets 77E/12, 13, 77F/07-16, 77G/01-08, 10, 11, 77H/04, 05, 87E/10, 15, and 87H/01 and 02. Although the samples cover a wide area bounded by 114° and 107° longitude, the sample distribution is densest on map sheets 77F/10, 14, 15, and 16. This exploration initiative was led by Monopros Ltd. in joint venture with WMC International Ltd.; it was designed to identify diamond as well as base and precious metal prospects on the associated prospecting permits.
The data can be found in Nunavut Assessment Report 084180.
