Geoscience BC Releases Two Reports at KEG
Geoscience BC is pleased to announce the release of the following two reports:
- Report 2014-06: Basal Till Potential Maps for the Interior Plateau, TREK Project, British Columbia (NTS 093B/12 & 13, 093C/09 & 16, 093F/01 & 08, 093G/04, 05, 12 & 13)
- Report 2014-08: Geology of the Mount Polley Intrusive Complex (FINAL version)
A brief description of each report is provided below. Both reports are available for download through Geoscience BC's website at www.geosciencebc.com/s/DataReleases.asp. The ten maps comprising Geoscience BC Report 2014-06 are also available as individual Open Files through BCGS's website at www.empr.gov.bc.ca/Mining/Geoscience/PublicationsCatalogue/OpenFiles/2014.
Geoscience BC Report 2014-06: Basal Till Potential Maps for the Interior Plateau, TREK Project, British Columbia (NTS 093B/12 & 13, 093C/09 & 16, 093F/01 & 08, 093G/04, 05, 12 & 13)
Geoscience BC Report 2014-06 consists of 10 Basal Till Potential Maps (BTPMs) that were produced in partnership with the British Columbia Geological Survey (BCGS). This report is a joint release with the BCGS, which has published these 10 maps as Open Files 2014-06 through 2014-15.
Till geochemical and mineralogical surveys are a central component of the TREK Project. The BTPMs were created in early 2013 to plan and implement the geochemical sampling program. By identifying areas where basal till is most likely to occur, the maps are also intended to help design exploration projects and guide surficial sediment geochemistry and mineralogy sampling programs.

Geoscience BC Report 2014-08: Geology of the Mount Polley Intrusive Complex (FINAL Version)
Geoscience BC Report 2014-08 presents the final PDF map with accompanying data for the geology of the Mount Polley porphyry copper-gold deposit in central BC (this supersedes the draft version released as Geoscience BC Report 2013-21). This map is based on several years of work by Imperial Metals Corporation geologists and includes lithology and structural layers, as well as mineralization and alteration maps that draw on surface observations and the detailed drill hole database in the mine area. It was produced in partnership with Imperial Metals Corporation through Geoscience BC's Porphyry Integration Project.
