Western Churchill Metallogeny Project, Quaternary component, 2002-2005

Project Description

The Quaternary geology component of the Western Churchill Metallogeny Project was designed in part to establish a regional framework for interpreting the ice-flow history of the Wager Bay and Schultz Lake areas, and to provide basic information on the composition of the till.  The field program involved helicopter-assisted ground work, including surficial geology mapping, till sampling and measuring of ice-flow indicators.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open Files 5014 (Wager Bay) and 5312 (Schultz Lake).
