Survey Description

During the 2011 field season, till sampling was carried out on a local to detailed scale in the vicinity of Snyder Lake., northwest Manitoba.  In total, 41 till samples of ~2 kg each were collected within an area of ~140 km 2.

Samples were collected from a depth of 40-60 cm from the B, B/C or C soil horizon in hand-dug pits.  Where present, samples were collected from mud boils in an attempt to sample the least oxidized and most representative material.

The data are published in Manitoba Geological Survey Geoscientific Paper GP 2013-1.

The data are also part of a compilation in Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development Open File OF2020-3.
