The regional stream survey for northern New Brunswick (parts of NTS 21O and 22B) was conducted during the summer of 1985.

This report presents analytical and statistical data for 20 elements in stream sediments from 598 sample sites, collected at an average density of one sample per 8.1 km². Loss-on-ignition in sediments, and uranium, fluoride, and pH values in waters from these sites are included in this report.

The reconnaissance surveys were undertaken by the Geological Survey of Canada in conjunction with the New Brunswick Department of Forests, Mines and Energy (Mineral Resources Division), under the Canada - New Brunswick Mineral Development Agreement (1984 - 1989).

E.H.W. Hornbrook directed the survey.

P.W.B. Friske coordinated the operational activities of contract and Geological Survey of Canada staff throughout the survey.

Other information:

Gold was usually determined on 10-gram sample, allowing a detection limit of 1 ppb; sample weights less than 10 grams resulted in a detection limit of 2 ppb. Sample weights less that 5 grams resulted in a detection limit of 4 ppb.
