Survey Description


Over 1700 till samples were collected in 1985-1987 in the central Miramichi Zone and vicinity in New Brunswick.  The data are published in GSC Open File 2237.  A final report on the Miramichi Zone, including stratigraphy and till geochemistry was published in GSC Bulletin 433.  89 samples from NTS 21O/2 were reanalyzed by XRF and published in GSC Open File 2246.  161 samples from NTS 21O/1 were reanalyzed by XRF and published in GSC Open File 2560.

Data Description:
