Other till/soil studies around known W mineralization in glaciated terrain and regional till surveys that reported significant W data are compared in Table 4.
This till geochemical study is the first detailed study around a major W deposit in glaciated terrain. Combined with the earlier work of Snow and Coker (1987), Lamothe (1992) and NBDEM (Seaman 2002, 2003; Seaman and McCoy 2008) around the Sisson W-Mo deposit, they define glacial dispersal of W pathfinder elements at least 40 km down ice to the southeast.

The Army's mountaineering team that was on expedition to the Pin Parbati pass situated at a height of 14,600 feet from mean sea level (MSL), stranded in the treacherous glaciated terrain in the higher Himalayan hills due to incessant rains, heavy snowfall and bad weather.
The program is designed to assist all prospectors and exploration companies working in the region and has application to other diamond-prospective glaciated terrains. GGL provided support and a base of operations at its all-season ZIP camp which has an active Class 'A' land use permit.
Prest, at the turn of the century, likened the process of finding gold mines in glaciated terrains to "following the tracks of a fox to its den by following its footsteps in the snow." The modern term for the search for mineral deposits using glacial deposits is called 'drift prospecting.'
