Survey Description

In 2007, 18 till samples were collected in the eastern Kisseynew belt, central Manitoba.  A 3 kg and a 10 kg sample were taken at each site.  To evaluate the potential for indicator mineral surveys over the Sherridon VMS Property, one till sample was collected about 100 m down-ice from the East Zone and one sample was collected directly over the surface projection of the deposit.

The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 7064.
