Survey Description

Till samples were collected around Iskwasum Lake and Loucks Lake in 1995, as part of a larger study, the NATMAP Shield Margin project, a federal/provincial program initiated by the Geological Survey of Canada.

Field site and sample descriptions have been lost.  The total carbonate data were released as part of a compilation, GSC Open File 3277.

These legacy data by published in their entirety in Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development data repository item DRI2020017 and are part of compilation OF2020-2.
