Southeastern Cape Breton Island till sampling survey, 1990-1991



Project Description

Reconnaissance and detailed till sampling were carried out in the Mira-Framboise area of southeastern Cape Breton Island Nova Scotia in 1990 and 1991.  The purposes of the project were to document changes in till provenance and relate these to the complex sequence of ice flow patterns known from glacial striae and to demonstrate methods for evaluating the mineral potential of the area using drift techniques.  The data are published in GSC Open File 2533.
