Survey Description


117 till samples were collected from 108 sites in the west half of the Coldstream area of west central New Brunswick in 1998 and 2000.  The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File 2001-2.

In 2001, 121 till samples were collected from 115 sites in the eastern two-thirds of the Coldstream map area of west central New Brunswick.  The data are published in Open File 2002-5.

In 2002, 53 till samples were collected from 46 sites in the Coldstream map area and 40 samples from 38 sites in the southwestern part of the Napadogan map area in west central New Brunswick.  The data are published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File 2003-11.
