Survey Description


During 1982 and 1983, a regional stream sediment survey was conducted throughout northern mainland Nova Scotia and eastern Cape Breton Island, an area covering about 10,000 km 2.  Approximately 4100 samples were collected at ~2 km intervals and wet-sieved onsite to pass through a 1 mm nylon screen, placed in Kraft paper bags and air dried.  Samples were then dry sieved to collect the -80 mesh material for analysis (AAS and ICP-AES).

Orientation surveys were conducted concurrently at the Meat Cove deposit and the Coxheath deposit.  Samples were collected at linear intervals of 350 m with the same collection and analytical procedures as the regional samples.

The following reports and maps were published:
