PGE Index Map #1

  • The pge geological index map #1 shows the locations and reference identification number of all the occurrences contained in the main report database.
  • To access the PGE Database you must download the of2000-5.pdf file.
  • The reference identification number (two or three-digit number given for each location) is a unique value for each occurrence that is also given in the upper right-hand corner on the first page of each occurrence description (Ref ID.) in the text portion of the database.
  • Use the occurrence hyperlinks that are set-up on the index map in of2000-5.pdf to move between this map and the main report database. The map is modified from the Bedrock Geology of Manitoba file contained in Viljoen et al. (1999).
  • We have also provided two non-linked index maps which can also be downloaded from the ftp site. Reminder: the single index maps are not linked to the main database. Map #1 is the main pge occurence map and is the first page of the report in of2000-5.pdf and Map #2 is a topographic map which shows the red occurrence dots, as well as the names of lakes, towns, cities, railways and roads.
