AbstractThe research group at the Geological Survey of Finland, established for applying glacial geological studies in prospecting, has developed the following research procedure. Exploration pits are dug at ore boulder sites. The tilt stratigraphy and directions of ice flow are established from the se pits, the distance the boulders were transported is assessed, and samples for tilt lithology and geochemistry are taken. A probability sector for the source rock of the boulders is determined from the directions of ice flow. The study is continued by tracing ore boulders and unique heavy mineral contents through the till unit. The procedure has proved very useful in Finland, where the surficial deposits are shallow, the average thickness being a mere 6. 7 m. During the last nine years, the source rocks for forty-five boulder trains or geochemical anomalies have been found.
