Survey Description


Till samples were collected in 1988 from 135 sites in Albert County in southeastern New Brunswick.  Samples were collected in 21H/10 (Alma, 43 sites), 21H/15 (Hillsborough, 69 sites), 21H/11 (Waterford, 21 sites) and 21H/14 (Petitcodiac, 2 sites).  The data were released as part of a Master’s thesis by M. Foisy at the University of Quebec at Montreal and published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File Report 89-51 and Map Plates 90-34A, 90-34B.

Data Description:
