Survey Description


Between 1995 and 1998, till samples were collected from 336 sites in the Millville area, southwest New Brunswick.  This includes original and follow-up sampling.  Sampling was based on a 2 km grid.  Basal lodgement or basal meltout till were collected at the grid point, or as close as possible if it was unavailable at the selected grid point.  Sample pits were excavated by hand to at least 0.1 m into the C-horizon if possible.  Sample pits were cleaned out and sampled by hand with a stainless steel hunting knife to loosen material.  Approximately 5 kg of till was collected.  Pebbles were also collected from the C-horizon.  The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File 99-11.

Data Description:

Paper report, data on diskette.

Quantities Analysed:

<0.063 mm fraction of till by INAA for 35 elements; by ICP-ES for 19 elements, S also done on the follow-up samples; Sn by fusion-ICP; Hg by CV-AAS.

Geochem Maps Available:

None.

Other Analyses:

<2 mm fraction of till used for grain size analyses.
