Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This Open File is a georeferenced database of all publicly-available geological, hydrogeological and exploration data on shale gas prospective units in Quebec (Utica Shale), New Brunswick (Frederick Brook) and Nova Scotia (Horton Bluff). The synthesis was done in collaboration with all Departments of Natural Resources and Environment of the three jurisdictions. It will allow interested stakeholders to acces and evaluate the entire available information and the interested parties will be directed to provincial departments hosting the detailed information.
