QUEST-South Project AreaQUEST-South applies the QUEST and QUEST-West Project approach to British Columbia's southern interior. The project will create new geoscience information over an area of 130,000 square kilometers from Williams Lake to the USA border, and aid mineral exploration companies in their quest to make new discoveries.

QUEST-South will include a new airborne gravity survey which covers 45,000 square kilometers between Williams Lake and the USA border, a new ground geochemical survey in the Merritt area, and the reanalysis of almost 9000 existing geochemical samples over eight 1:250 000 NTS mapsheets (an area of approximately 126,000 square kilometers).
