Report Description
Geoscience BC Report 2007-3 / MEMPR Geofile 2007-5 presents the geology and mineral deposits of the Skeena Arch area of West Central British Columbia. This project was funded by Geoscience BC (Contribution Number GBC047). This Geofile is the primary vehicle for distributing map-based geoscience data and linking to the map from this project. For more details about this project go to Geological Fieldwork 2005, pages 303-312 and Geological Fieldwork 2006, pages 333-340.

A key objective of the Skeena Arch project was to generate a series of GIS compatible data files that could be downloaded and incorporated into standard GIS software packages. The files are available as ESRI shape files because this format can be used in almost all commercially available GIS packages including ESRI's free Arc Explorer. Two projections are currently available -- UTM and Geographic. Also included for download is a Manifold GIS Map file that contains all of the layers used to build the Skeena Arch metallogenic map. Manifold also supports the creation of KLM files for use in viewers such as Google Earth. The following KML layers were generated for the project area: RGS, copper and molybdenum anomalies; MINFILE and Porphyry Cu-Mo and Mo occurrences; geology layers, including Babine, Bulkley and Nanika intrusive suites, faults and marker units; and logging roads.
