Survey Description


In late May 1987, samples were collected from 854 sites within a 5000 km2 area of the Meguma terrane of eastern Nova Scotia (parts of NTS 11D, E and F).  Over 250 of these sites comprised detailed surveys over zones in the Beaver Dam area, leaving 593 sites as the regional component of the study.  Balsam fir twigs were the primary sample medium and the data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 2002.  Red spruce twigs and shrub alder were also collected at most sites for future study.  Red spruce bark was collected from every fifth tree and these data are published in Prospecting in Areas of Glaciated Terrain – 1988.
