Survey Description


In 2007 and 2008, till and bedrock samples were collected near the Halfmile Lake deposit, northern New Brunswick.  A total of 55 large (25 kg) till samples and 30 bedrock samples were collected in 2007.  In 2008, an additional 20 till samples were collected to further document the distribution of specific indicator minerals found in the 2007 till samples.

The following open files were published:

 

Sample Type GSC Open File Data
Bedrock, till 7076 Raw indicator mineral abundance data
Till 7174 Geochemistry
Bedrock 7644 Indicator mineral signatures
Till 8111 Indicator minerals
