Year Mapsheet Count
1990 FC 89
1990 FV 11
1992 FC 5
1992 FV 167
1993 FV 26
1995 FV 2

 

The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Resources and Energy Open File Reports 92-6, 93-7.  Follow-up work for the Forest City and Fosterville areas can be found in Open File Reports 93-8 and 94-8 respectively.  A compilation of all the data can be found in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File Report 99-7.

Data Description:

Paper report. Digital data on diskette.

Quantities Analysed:

<0.063 mm fraction by AAS after hot HNO3 digestion for Ag, Co, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, and Zn; by AAS following HCl-HNO3 (3:1) extraction for Ag, Bi, and Cd; by CV-AAS after HNO3-HCl-SnCl2 extraction for Hg; by INAA for 34 elements.  Follow-up samples from the Fosterville area were also analysed for Ag, Cd, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn by ICP-ES.

Geochem Maps Available:

Contour maps showing dispersal of selected elements.

Other Analyses:

Grain-size (<2 mm); pebble lithologies.
