Province of Nova Scotia, Cumberland County, Apple River Sheet, No 100 and 101

From MemoryNS, E. R. Fairbault geological survey maps:

E.R. Faribault (1855-1934), was a geologist with the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) from 1882 until 1932. His life’s work was the systematic geological mapping of Nova Scotia. This series forms part of the map collection and consists of maps, produced by his teamwork with Hugh Fletcher. It was the GSC’s most ambitious project to that point and continued until Faribault’s retirement in 1933. These maps are amazingly detailed and accurate considering the time at which they were created, the equipment available and the lack of subsurface information. These maps continue to stand as examples of excellence in field geology and are still referred to by modern geologists.
