|Abstract||Occurrences of minerals, rocks, and fossils are described for localities along Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, and along South Shore, Nova Scotia. The collecting area features world-famous
occurrences of the quartz-family minerals and zeolites along the Bay of Fundy shore. It also includes mines and occurrences of gypsum, barite, potash, halite, copper, antimony, tin, beryllium, manganese, iron, nickel, lead, gold, molybdenite,
tungsten, and building stone. |
Shoreline occurrences, inactive mines and quarries, and roadcuts provide most of the collecting localities. In general, operating mines are not open to collectors. Some old mines, no longer accessible, are included
for historical interest.
