Bundle Description

Geochemical results of till samples surveyed in the Upsalquitch Forks region of New Brunswick are presented. This area of New Brunswick corresponds to NTS map sheet 21 O/10.

The basal till fractions (< 63 micron) were analysed for 28 trace elements using instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA). Hg was analysed using cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (Hg-CVAAS).  X-ray fluorescence (XRF) was used to analyse the samples for Bi and Sn.  The analyses were performed by X-Ray Assay Laboratories (XRAL) in Toronto, Ontario.

The analytical data were obtained from Mike Parkhill in 2005 (in an MS Excel spreadsheet).

The geochemical results of this survey were reported by A.G. Pronk, NBDNRE.

The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Forests, Mines and Energy Geological Notes Series P.M. 87-47.

Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: X-Ray Assay Laboratories, Toronto (XRAL)

Name: XRAL INA + Hg CV-AAS + XRF (more)

Till samples were dry sieved using an 8 inch sieve shaker.  The <63 µm fraction was analysed for 28 trace elements using instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA).  Mercury analysis was performed by cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (Hg-CVAAS).  Analysis of Bi and Sn was performed by X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF).  The analyses were performed by X-Ray Assay Laboratories (XRAL) in Toronto, Ontario.
