Northeastern Ontario till sampling survey, 1993-1996
Closely-spaced till samples were collected around 5 known Archean lode gold deposits in 1993-1996. The objectives of the project were 1) to document the nature of gold grain, multi-element geochemical and pebble lithological signatures in till associated with the gold deposits; 2) to demonstrate the use of till gold grain and geochemical methods in detecting gold mineralization in the Timmins area; 3) to compare the effectiveness of different size fractions of till for gold exploration; and 4) to examine the natural geochemical signatures in till around gold deposits from an environmental perspective. The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 3707.
