Scope and content

Series documents an unsuccessful mineral exploration project in Northern Quebec carried out around 1946 by Fockler and his associates in partnership with the International Nickel Company of Canada (Inco). The project investigated several areas of magnetic anomalies first observed by Captain Ernest Gann's flight crew during a rescue operation in 1943, which could have indicated the presence of mineral deposits.
