Open File 1994-18 presents the results from regional till geochemical sampling in the Fawnie Creek map area, conducted at 171 sites in 1993. The program demonstrates the utility of till geochemical sampling in regions where mineral exploration has been hampered by thick drift cover. Surficial geology mapping was conducted in conjunction with till geochemical sampling in order to understand the glacial history of the area and provide a basis for design of the sampling program. The primary objective of the till geochemical survey in the Fawnie area was to identify areas where glaciers eroded mineralized bedrock and redeposited the mineral debris as till in down-ice dispersal trains.
