Release Notice Text


Geochemical Stream Sediments Maps, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia

          These Open File maps at 1:50 000 scale report the analytical results on samples collected in 1982. Each Open File comprises 13 maps, one each for metal content of Cu, Pb, Zn, Ag, Fe, Mn, Co, Ni, As, Mo, Hg and U and for sample numbers. The marginal notes contain details of sampling method, analytical method and detection limit, histogram, cumulative frequency curve and basic statistical analysis.

The data were acquired under the Canada-Nova Scotia Co-operative Mineral Program 1981-1984; Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) funded the collection and analyses of the samples and Nova Scotia Department of Mines and Energy (NSDME) supplied the project leader and ancillary services. The maps are released jointly by GC and NSDME.
