Survey Description

In the summer of 1995, a small reconnaissance till and biogeochemistry survey was carried out in the vicinity of the Dead Creek Pb-Zn-quartz float occurrence, southwestern New Brunswick.  Samples were collected from 3 lines separated by 100 m that extended northward from the float occurrence, across the bog and onto the higher ground to the north.  B-horizon soil and black spruce bark were collected at 100 m intervals on dry land; bark samples were collected at 200 m intervals over the bog.  A few basal and deformation till samples were also collected from sections in the area.  The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File Report 96-10.
