Summary:The area is characterized by: 1) Sn-W-Mo mineralization associated with extensive granitic intrusion in Devonian to early Carboniferous time and 2) minor occurrences of sulphides partly associated with the Tetagouche group. The clay fraction of 198 till samples was analysed for 16 elements. Geochemical response in till down-ice from known mineralized sources shows definite anomalous patterns. [T.F.]
