Survey Description


In the summers of 1957 and 1958, hundreds of stream sediment samples were collected in the northern part of mainland Nova Scotia.  Samples were collected from the beds of most streams accessible by road or track.

The following maps have been published:

 

GSC Preliminary Map Data Year
7-1958 Semi-quantitative determinations for “heavy metals” (mainly zinc, lead and copper) data from samples collected in 1957
25-1959 Zinc in stream sediments data from samples collected in 1957 and 1958
26-1959 Lead in stream sediments data from samples collected in 1957 and 1958
27-1959 Copper in stream sediments data from samples collected in 1957 and 1958
33-1959 “Heavy metals” in stream sediments data from samples collected in 1957 and 1958
