Survey Description


During the summer and fall of 1999, 120 till samples were collected from 114 sites in the Woodstock area, southwest New Brunswick.  Sampling was based on a 2 km grid.  Basal lodgement till or basal meltout till comprised the sample medium at most sites.  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 2000-3.
