Soil and till sampling, NTS 21J/06, Sisson Brook area, central New Brunswick, 1982-1983.
(requires an Internet connection)
In 1982, a geochemical orientation survey was carried out on the Sisson Brook Mining Licence where three zones of W-Mo-Cu mineralization have been outlined. Profile samples of O, A, B and C horizons and unaltered till were collected. In 1983, whole till samples were collected and were combined with the corresponding 1982 whole till geochemical data to give a total population of 157 overburden samples. In all, samples were taken from 56 backhoe trenches and 9 hand-dug pits. The study is described in Journal of Geochemical Exploration v.28.
