Bundle Description

Geochemical results of till samples surveyed in the Atholville, Escuminac and Oak Bay regions of New Brunswick are presented.  These areas of New Brunswick correspond to NTS map sheet 21 O/15, 22 B/1 and 22 B/2 respectively.

The basal till fractions (< 63 micron) were analysed for 8 trace elements using atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS).  The samples were analysed for Mo using colorimetry.  The analyses were performed by New Brunswick DNRE Geochemical Laboratory.

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 and M. A. Parkhill, NBDNRE.

The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Forests, Mines and Energy Geological Notes Series P.M. 88-10.  Some samples from this area were re-analysed and published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File 2002-9.

Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: New Brunswick DNRE Geochemical Laboratory

Name: NBDNRE AAS + COL (Mo) (more)

Till samples were dry sieved using an 8 inch sieve shaker.  The <63 µm fraction was analysed for 8 trace elements using atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS).  Colorimetry analysis was performed on the samples for Mo.  The analyses were performed by New Brunswick DNRE Geochemical Laboratory.
