Bundle Description

Geochemical results of till samples surveyed in the Canterbury region of New Brunswick are presented.  This area of New Brunswick corresponds to NTS map sheet 21G/14.

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

The analytical data were obtained from Al Seaman in 2005 (in an MS Excel spreadsheet).

The geochemical results of this survey were reported by Solweig Balzer

The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File Report 92-5.  These data were republished as part of New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Map Plates 96-2A, 96-2B and 96-2C.

Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: New Brunswick DNRE Geochemical Laboratory

Name: NBDNRE AAS (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) with an air acetylene flame.  The analyses were performed by New Brunswick DNRE Geochemical Laboratory.
