Cobequid-Chedabucto Fault Zone, Gravity Survey

DP ME 509, Version 1, 2018, Ground Gravity Survey, Cobequid-Chedabucto Fault Zone, Northern mainland, Nova Scotia


This dataset consists of a SHP file of 11,662 ground gravity stations and JPG images for 1st vertical derivative bouguer gravity and residual gravity over the full length of the Cobequid-Chedabucto Fault Zone in the northern mainland of Nova Scotia.This work was done in 2008 and 2009 by Minotaur Atlantic Exploration Limited and used from 2008 to 2012 as part of mineral exploration work in the area. There were several assessment reports submitted over this period that describe this survey and the results (e.g. AR_ME_2008-18 and AR_ME_2009-010).

The purpose of this data was to find gravity anomalies to assist with mineral exploration work.
