"This report summarizes NWRI data on the major Canadian nearshore sediment deposits of Lake Ontario. It has been prepared in response to a request from the Industrial Minerals Section of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (Appendix 1) for a compilation of existing data useful to the assessment of Lake Ontario nearshore deposits as reserves of sand and gravel. The report consists of a series of maps and tables indicating the extent, grain-size, depth range and thickness of nearshore deposits at Niagara, Burlington, Toronto and Presqu'ile-Wellington (Figure 1), and a documentation of the procedures used to acquire and compile the data"--Introduction, page 1.
