Bundle Description

Geochemical results of till samples surveyed in the Nepsiguit Falls region of northern New Brunswick are presented.  This area of New Brunswick corresponds to NTS map sheet 21P/5.

The basal till (< 63 micron) samples were analysed for 100 major elements and 110 trace elements using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES).  The samples were also analysed for 100 rare earth elements plus yttrium and 110 trace elements using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).  The analyses were performed by the Geological Survey of Canada Analytical Chemistry Laboratory in Ottawa, Ontario.

The geochemical results of this survey were reported by Michael A. Parkhill (NBDNRE) and Marni Lynne Dickson (University of New Brunswick).

The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File 99-10.

Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: GSC: Analytical Chemistry Laboratory, Geological Survey of Canada, Ottawa

Name: GSC ICP-AES + ICP-MS (more)

Till samples were dry sieved using an 8 inch sieve shaker.  The <63 µm fraction was analysed for 100 major elements and 110 trace elements using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) and for 100 rare earth elements plus yttrium and 110 trace elements using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).  The analyses were performed by the Geological Survey of Canada Analytical Chemistry Laboratory in Ottawa, Ontario.
