Survey Description


Till samples from 974 sites were collected over the northern Miramichi Zone in New Brunswick in 1985.  The data are published in GSC Open File 2236.  A final report on the Miramichi Zone, including stratigraphy and till geochemistry was published in GSC Bulletin 433.  Some samples from 21O/15, 16 were re-analysed and published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File 2002-9.  Seventy-seven samples from 21P/5 were re-analysed and published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Open File 99-10.

Data Description:

Paper report; digital data.
