(requires an Internet connection)
A total of 171 till and humus samples were collected in the Atholville-Charlo area of north central New Brunswick in 1998 and 1999. A few samples were also collected in northernmost part of Tetagouche Lakes (21O/9) and Upsalquitch Forks (21O/10). The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File 2002-9.
