AbstractThis Open File provides a data table (as an Excel file) of more than 3,000 mineral chemistry analyses determined by electron microprobe from representative samples of mostly igneous rocks from the Cobequid Highlands, Nova Scotia, as well as a few analyses from sedimentary and low grade metamorphic rocks. The ages of the analysed samples range from Neoproterozoic to Carboniferous. Minerals analysed include both primary (magmatic) and secondary (hydrothermal or low grade metamorphic) minerals. Most analyses are from amphibole, biotite, clinopyroxene, plagioclase, K-feldspar, titanite, rutile, allanite, orthopyroxene, zircon, apatite, garnet and Fe and Fe-Ti oxides. The secondary/hydrothermal/metamorphic mineral analyses include mostly biotite, chlorite, actinolite, epidote, albite, muscovite, garnet, pyrite and Fe and Fe-Ti oxides.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This is a database of chemical analyses by electron microprobe of rock forming minerals collected under Mineral Development Agreements and the NatMap program in the late 20th century.
