Survey Description

During the summers of 1960 and 1961, stream sediment sampling was carried out in southeastern New Brunswick in the counties of Westmorland, Albert, Kings, Queens and Saint John.  Hundreds of samples were collected in an area between the Petitcodiac River and the Saint John River.

A summary of the work can be found in Geological Survey of Canada Paper 62-22 (includes maps of the “heavy metal” content for Cu, Pb and Zn).

Samples were later analysed for uranium and published in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Information Circular IC 68-3.
