NeR loc., Branchian Series, Brigus Fm, 59.0m above Ner Sect. base - Landing 1995 (Cambrian to of Canada)

Where: Nova Scotia, Canada (45.8° N, 60.3° W: paleocoordinates 76.6° S, 61.6° W)

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Callavia broeggeri zone, Brigus Formation, Atdabanian to Atdabanian (520.0 - 513.0 Ma)

• JA: Brigus Formation is in the Callavia broeggeri Zone within the lower Branchian Series; correlation to Siberian stages is not indicated, but unit overlies the Atdabanian Fosters Point Formation and is Early Cambrian, so presumably it is Atdabanian or Botomian
