Bundle Description

Soil samples were collected from 178 sites in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island in 2007, as part of the “North American Soil Geochemical Landscapes Project”.  The <2mm size fraction of the C horizon sample was analysed by INAA.

The data are published in GSC Open File 6433.

Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: Becquerel Laboratories Inc., Mississauga, Ontario

Name: Becquerel INAA (2003-2010) (more)

Till samples were dry sieved using an 8 inch sieve shaker.  The <63 µm fraction was analysed for 35 trace elements (including Ni and Ti) using instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA).  The analyses were performed by Becquerel Laboratories Ltd. In Mississauga, Ontario.
