324 regional till samples were collected in the Mira-Framboise area of southeastern Cape Breton Island. An additional 169 samples were collected from closely spaced sites around an inactive base metal mine and 2 mineralized bedrock occurrences. The data from this survey and the 1990 orientation survey are published in GSC Open File 2533.
