Survey Description


Approximately 450 soil samples and 15 bedrock samples were collected from 80 separate soil profile locations in the counties of Restigouche, Gloucester and Northumberland in northern New Brunswick.  The exact year of collection is unknown, but it was around 1964.  Samples were taken from the A-, B- and C- horizons.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the amount, distribution and nature of iron, manganese, lead, copper, zinc, arsenic, antimony, silver, tin and cadmium in podzolic soils profiles from the Bathurst area.  Six soil profiles were selected for detailed chemical and mineralogical studies.

A detailed description of the study and interpretation of the results can be found in Geological Survey of Canada Bulletin 174.
