Survey Description


In the summer of 2012, 23 till and 5 bedrock samples were collected in the vicinity of the Mount Pleasant Sn-W-Mo-Bi-In deposit, New Brunswick.  The till samples were collected from 22 sites up-ice, overlying, and up to 1.75 km down-ice (southeast) of the deposit.  In addition, one sample was collected 12 km northwest of the deposit to characterize background (up-ice) till composition.  Bedrock samples each weighed between 0.3 and 1 kg.
