Soil, Till, Indicator minerals
Soil and till sampling survey, NTS 52H/4, Baker Zone, Lac des Iles mine area, northwestern Ontario, 2000.
(requires an Internet connection)
36 B-horizon soil and 56 till samples were collected in the Baker Zone in the Lac des Iles mine area in 2000. Two sampling lines, 50 m apart were run parallel to ice flow direction and extended up and down-ice from known mineralization. The data are published in Ontario Geological Survey Open File Report 6054.
Paper report with data lists. Digital data available separately as MRD-71 (Miscellaneous Release-Data 71).
<0.177 mm fraction of humus and <0.063 mm fraction of till by ICP-AES for 25 elements; by ICP-AES-FA for Au, Pd, and Pt; and ICP-MS for 51 elements.
