Surficial geology and Quaternary history of the McLeod Lake map area (NTS 93J), central British Columbia.
Central British Columbia has highly prospective bedrock geology but mineral exploration has been limited in some areas due to the thick cover of quaternary glaciogenic material. A primary method of mineral exploration in such terrain is drift prospecting. This project will provide information on the Quaternary history, specifically the distribution of surface materials and ice flow history, which are vital for the planning and interpretation of geochemical surveys used in drift prospecting. This will be accomplished through the mapping of surficial deposits, landforms and the interpretation of stratigraphic sections ice flow data. Furthermore, this project will provide information on the style and chronology of glaciation in this understudied area of central British Columbia.
