This data set consists of TIFF images for calculated vertical magnetic gradient, total field magnetic, radiometric uranium concentration, radiometric equivalent thorium concentration, and radiometric potassium concentration for the Warwick Mountain area, Eastern Cobequid Highlands, Nova Scotia. Tripple Uranium Resources Incorporated, by way of its parent company, Capella Resources Limited, contracted Fugro Airborne Surveys of Mississauga, Ontario to perform these geophysical surveys in 2007. The Geoscience and Mines Branch (GMB) translated the geophyscal images from Geosoft GRD files to an ArcGIS file geodatabase and TIFF files in February 2018.

The purpose of this data set was to enhance the level of geological knowledge in the project area.
