This dataset includes pdf representations of drill core logs showing associated drill core information, a pdf of the explanation for the lithology and structure sections of the logs, a shapefile of the locations of the drill holes, and eleven individual .csv files of tabular data that was compiled from hand written drill core logs.

The pdf images and .csv files include lithologic, structure, grain size, sulfide, copper, and nickel mineralization information.
