This digital product is a digital version of Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources (NSDNR) Open File Map ME 2018-005, compiled by T.G. MacHattie in 2018. The original data collection was done as part of the Eastern Cobequid Highlands Mapping Project from 2008-2017, and detailed field mapping, petrography, geochemistry and high-precision CA-ID-TIMS zircon geochronology have all been used to define the volcanic stratigraphy, major flow units and associated sub-volcanic intrusive rocks depicted in the preliminary map. The digital product was created by the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources, Geoscience and Mines Branch (GMB) staff. The digital product contains layers for geological features such as age dates, faults, bedrock geological units, geological contacts, and small outcrops.

The bedrock geological mapping, along with surficial geological mapping, lithogeochemistry sampling, and silt and till geochemical surveys, was a component of renewed bedrock and mineral deposit research on the epithermal gold potential of the Byers Brook and Diamond Brook formations.
