During the summer of 1988, truck-supported stream sediment and water sampling was carried out in north central New Brunswick.  Samples were collected at an average density of one sample per 2 km2 throughout the 1,055 km2 survey area.  Sample site duplicate samples were routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 1953.

This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.
