Sudbury basin soil and till sampling survey carried out in 1992

Project Description

A multi-year study of Quaternary geology and drift geochemistry along the north and east ranges of the Sudbury basin was initiated in 1992.  The Sudbury mining camp was chosen because of its world famous Ni-Cu sulphide ores and precious metals.  The study was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of surficial geochemistry for mineral exploration in the Sudbury mining camp; to provide baseline geochemical data for environmental applications; and to provide practical information on the geochemical behaviour of Ni, Cu and platinum group elements (PGEs) in the surficial environment.  The data are published in Ontario Geological Survey Open File Report 6033.
