AbstractContinuously cored boreholes referred to as "Golden Spikes" provide a geological framework for groundwater studies in Southern Ontario. Core is logged in bed-by-bed detail with emphasis on material description, bed contact and erosion surfaces, and sampled for physical properties. Boreholes are logged for downhole geophysical properties, and installed with piezometers for hydrogeological monitoring. Sedimentological and stratigraphic information collected from Golden Spikes, when combined with field mapping, surface geophysics and water well records can provide a three-dimensional geological history of a sedimentary basin.
