Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-4) is a collaborative federal geoscience program that provides industry with the next generation of geoscience knowledge and innovative techniques to better detect buried mineral deposits, thereby reducing some of the risks of exploration. Portable x-ray flourescence spectroscopy (pXRF) has been applied to surficial sediment samples over a regional study area in the vicinity of the East Arm of Grat Slave Lake. The pXRF data is similar to conventional laboratory till geochemical studies in the ability to identify areas with anomalous geochemical signatures.
