Geochemical background can be linked to various till units and related to late or post glacial processes. These processes are possibly related to late glacial erosion accompanying the formation of the esker systems. Future research includes; investigation of till geochemical variation within kimberlite dispersal trains, quantification of till reworking index, detailed mapping to investigate the late to post glacial process affecting till thickness and texture, and assessing the effect of these processes on possible heavy indicator mineral enrichments.
