AbstractAs part of the Geological Survey of Canada's Targeted Geoscience Initiative 4 (TGI-4) Program, till, stream sediment, and bedrock samples around the Sisson W-Mo deposit in west-central New Brunswick were collected to determine the indicator minerals and their trace element signatures that are indicative of intrusion-hosted W-Mo deposits. The purpose of this open file is to report the raw indicator mineral weight and abundance data for bedrock, till, and stream sediment samples collected in 2011 and 2012 for this case study. Samples were processed by the commercial laboratory Overburden Drilling Management Limited, Ottawa, ON, 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.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This publication reports sample location information and raw laboratory heavy mineral data for till, stream sediment, and bedrock samples from and around the Sisson W-Mo deposit in west central, New Brunswick.
