Summary



Search was a program of three regional airborne geophysical surveys flown across British Columbia’s Northwest, North Central and Northeast Regions between 2015 and 2017. The surveys were designed to highlight geology where mineral deposits might be to help exploration companies, First Nations and governments to plan future land use and to attract investment to BC.

Each survey used magnetometers to record local magnetic variations in the upper region of the Earth's crust. Phases II and III also recorded radiometric (background radioactivity) data to better understand local geology and alteration.

The Search program surveyed 40,300 km2 – an area roughly the size of Switzerland. The regional-scale of the surveys allows broad interpretation of regional mineral potential, while the relatively narrow survey line spacing at 250 meters allows detailed interpretations at a property-scale.

Search Phase III: Airborne Magnetic and Radiometric Survey

Search Phase III covered a 9,600 square kilometres remote area of northern BC from the Kemess Underground mine project in the north to an area northwest of Mackenzie. This survey collected both magnetic and radiometric data and was conducted using helicopters flying a constant 80 m above the ground.
