Strategic Focus Area:  Minerals


Central Interior Copper-Gold Research (CICGR) is a major multi-year Geoscience BC series of collaborative minerals earth science projects in British Columbia between the Mount Polley (Quesnel) and Gibraltar (Williams Lake) mines in the south, and the Mount Milligan (Mackenzie) mine in the north. It is designed to highlight potential mineral deposits buried under glacial deposits in order to focus mineral exploration, attract investment and assist more informed natural resource decisions.

Central Interior Copper-Gold Research: Surficial Exploration Project

This project is generating new data about the layers of sediments deposited by glaciers (e.g. till) found in an area between the Mount Polley (Quesnel), and Gibraltar (Williams Lake) and Mount Milligan (Mackenzie) mines to provide a framework that can be used to trace till samples and geochemical anomalies back to their source, which may help to identify areas of potential mineral exploration interest.
