Bundle Description

Geochemical results of till samples surveyed in the Codys region of southern New Brunswick are presented.  This area of New Brunswick corresponds to NTS map sheet 21H/13.

The basal till (< 63 micron) samples were analysed for 7 trace elements (Ag, Cd, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn) using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES).  Mercury was determined by cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (Hg-CVAAS).  The analyses were performed by Activation (Actlabs) Labs Ltd., Ancaster, Ontario.

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

The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Map Plates 2001-7A and 2001-7B.

Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: Activation Laboratories Limited, Ancaster, Ontario

Name: ActLabs ICP-AES + Hg CV-AAS (more)

Till samples were dry sieved using an 8 inch sieve shaker.  The <63 µm fraction was analysed for 7 trace elements (Ag, Cd, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn) using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES).  Mercury analysis was done by cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (Hg-CVAAS).  The analyses were performed by ActLabs Ltd. in Ancaster, Ontario.
