AbstractTill and bedrock samples were collected from and around the Halfmile Lake Zn-Pb-Cu volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposit in northern New Brunswick to determine their indicator minerals and trace element signatures that are indicative of VMS deposits. The purpose of this open file is to report the raw indicator mineral abundance data for bedrock and till samples collected in 2007 and 2008 for this case study. Till and bedrock samples were processed by the commercial lab Overburden Drilling Management Limited using a combination of tabling, panning, and heavy liquids to recover potential indicator minerals. Sample locations, weights of various fractions produced during sample processing, and indicator mineral grains identified are reported in this open file.
