- Report Description
- Property File is an online database accessible at http://propertyfile.gov.bc.ca; the original hard-copy archive contains an estimated 100 000 geoscientific documents from the last 150 years of BC's mining history, of which approximately 9000 (including this update) are available online.
In this project, 2860 geoscientific documents from the BC Geological Survey's Property File were scanned and used to make available additional geological information pertaining to Geoscience BC's QUEST Project areas. Documents used in this project were donated to Property File's Industry File by companies including Cyprus-Anvil, Rimfire, Chevron and Placer Dome. The documents were sorted, culled, catalogued, scanned, indexed, posted to the online database and cross-referenced with any related MINFILE occurrences. In total, 481 MINFILE occurrences were updated and 17 new MINFILE occurrences were identified.
These and other locations examined in the past and documented in Property File may have become of economic significance since the publication of the original reports. By synthesizing information found in the Property File database with the information from the ARIS and MINFILE databases and the MapPlace, exploration companies can save both cost and effort to find viable occurrences that were once unviable due to location or grade.
