- Report Description
A two-year reconnaissance-scale stream and glacial sediment sampling project was implemented by the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) in 2005 with the objective of evaluating the potential for diamond-bearing kimberlite, gold, base metal and other economic commodities in northeast British Columbia. The first year of the project involved reconnaissance-scale sampling of stream and glacial sediments. In the second and final year of the project, additional sediment samples were collected along three east-west transects located between Fort St. John and Fort Nelson.
The objective of this report (Geoscience BC Report 2009-2/GSC Open File 6311) is to present the final results of the 2005 and 2006 stream sediment and water sampling program. This report includes an interpretation of kimberlite indicator mineral data in addition to baseline geochemical data for stream silts, waters, heavy mineral concentrates and mineralogical data for heavy mineral concentrates. This activity was funded by Geoscience BC and the Geological Survey of Canada.
