AbstractAs part of the Geological Survey of Canada's Targeted Geoscience Initiative 4 (TGI-4), till, stream sediment, and bedrock samples were collected around the Sisson W-Mo deposit in west-central New Brunswick to determine the indicator mineral signature that is indicative of an intrusion-hosted W-Mo deposit. This open file describes the results for 12 bedrock samples from mineralization as well as host rocks around the deposit. These samples were examined as polished thin sections and <2.0 mm heavy mineral concentrates. In this study, the indicator minerals that characterize the Sisson W-Mo deposit include: scheelite, wolframite, molybdenite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena,
pyrite, and native bismuth.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-4) is a collaborative federal geoscience program that provides industry with the next generation of geoscience knowledge and innovative techniques to better detect buried mineral deposits, thereby reducing some of the risks of exploration. The open file reports indicator mineral data for bedrock samples collected at and around the Sisson W-Mo deposit in central New Brunswick as part of the Targeted Geoscience Initiative 4 (TGI-4) indicator mineral study.
