Survey Description


In 1985, 265 till sites were sampled on a regularly spaced 2 km grid in the Tetagouche Lakes area of northern New Brunswick.  B-horizon and C-horizon samples were taken.  The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Forests, Mines and Energy Geological Notes Series P.M. 86-216.  Some samples from this area were re-analysed and published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File 2002-9.

Data Description:

Paper report with partial data lists.  Rest of analytical results available separately.

Quantities Analysed:

C-horizon <0.002 mm fraction by AAS for 10 elements; by colourimetry for As; by XRF for Sb.  B-horizon <0.177 mm by AAS for 8 elements; by colourimetry for Mo and Sb; heavy minerals by INAA for 21 elements.

Geochem Maps Available:

Map showing dispersal of Au (B-, C-horizons, pan concentrate) and As with element value (as a number) at each site.

Other Analyses:

Heavy minerals taken from sites with base metal and/or gold pathfinder anomalies.
