Northeast Saskatchewan till survey, 1992

Project Description

A multidisciplinary project was initiated in the Peter Lake Domain, northeast Saskatchewan.  The primary objectives of the Quaternary component are: 1) to characterize the till deposits; 2) to determine optimum sample size and fraction; and, 3) to determine if till composition reflects the bedrock.  This will aid in the evaluation of drift prospecting applications for various minerals, and potentially outline new areas of economic interest.  Thirty-eight samples collected from the Peter Lake Domain by Schreiner in 1976 were also used in this study.  A summary of the work can be found in Saskatchewan Geological Survey Summary of Investigations 1992, Miscellaneous Report 92-4.
