AbstractAs part of the Geological Survey of Canada's Targeted Geoscience Initiative 4 (TGI-4) Program, till and bedrock samples were collected around the Mount Pleasant Sn-W-Mo-Bi-In deposit in southwest New Brunswick to determine the indicator minerals and their trace element signatures that are indicative of intrusion-hosted polymetallic Sn-W deposits. The purpose of this open file is to report the raw indicator mineral weight and abundance data for bedrock and till samples collected in 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. Interpretation of results will be presented in future publications.
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. This open file reports raw heavy mineral sample processing and indicator mineral abundance data for till and bedrock samples collected around the Mount Pleasant Sn-W-M-Bi-In deposit in southwest New Brunswick. These samples were collected as part of the Geological Survey of Canada's TGI-4 Program.
