Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Eskers are common in Canada, especially on the Precambrian Shield (Fig. 1). They are, along with stream samples and till, one of three principal media sampled during drift prospecting to identify indicator-mineral dispersal trains downflow of mineral deposits. Esker sampling is a proven exploration method: it has led to the discovery of several kimberlite pipes (Lee, 1968), including the Lac de Gras kimberlite field, home to Canada's first diamond mine (Krajick, 2003). The bibliography compiles key papers on how sediment is eroded, transported, partitioned, modified, and deposited in esker sedimentary systems1, and the nature of the clastic dispersal trains that result. It was assembled during the writing of a short, accompanying review paper on esker dispersal trains (Cummings et al., in review). All references on esker dispersal trains we could find are included. To provide context and ideas, we also include some key papers from related disciplines (e.g., dispersal in gravel-bed streams).
