AbstractTill, stream sediment and bedrock samples from and around the Pine Point Zn-Pb mine district in the Northwest Territories were collected to determine the indicator minerals and their trace element signatures that are indicative of Mississippi Valley-Type deposits. The purpose of this open file is to report the raw indicator mineral weight and abundance data for bedrock, till and stream sediment samples collected in 2010 and 2011 for this case study. Samples were processed by the commercial lab Overburden Drilling Management Limited, Ottawa, using a combination of tabling, panning and heavy liquids to recover potential indicator minerals. Sample locations, weights of various fractions produced during sample processing and indicator mineral grains identified are reported in this open file.
