Survey Description

In September 2000, geochemical sampling was carried out in the area of the Clarence Stream gold property, south central New Brunswick.  Detailed sampling was carried out along four grid lines over the known mineralization.  A total of 58 sites were visited:


Sample Type Number of Sites
Humus 58
B-horizon (2 samples at each site) 58
Till 24 of 58
Till (8-10 kg) 17 of 58


A summary of the work can be found in New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy, Mineral Resource Report 2001-4.

In addition, 11 sites were selected off the property to establish background levels in the various sample media.  The till samples were processed for heavy minerals.  The data for the regional samples have not yet been published.
