Survey Description

During the summer of 1995, a multimedia geochemical sampling program was carried out at the Restigouche Zn-Pb deposit.  Humus, B horizon soil, basal till and balsam fir twigs were collected in a 1000 x 500 m area over and peripheral to the deposit.  Samples were collected at 102 sites along nine southwest-northeast traverses at intervals which varied from about 25 to 100 m.

Conventional and selective leach geochemical methods were applied to hums and B horizon soil samples.

A detailed report can be found in Economic Geology Monograph 11.
