Curie Point Depth Mapping Pilot Study in Northwest British Columbia

Project code: 2016-049

Project type: Geothermal

Proponent: Jeff Witter, Mira Geoscience Ltd. and Craig Miller, SFU

Project location: Northwest BC


Summary
The Curie Point Depth Mapping Pilot Study over a small area of northwestern British Columbia. Curie point depth mapping uses regional-scale magnetic survey data to map the depth in the Earth's crust where magnetization disappears. When used in combination with other data (e.g. heat flow) it can be used as a regional-scale geothermal prospecting tool.

Survey Area
The Curie point mapping pilot study was over 350 km x 350 km region of northwestern British Columbia.

What was found?
Based on the results, the authors recommend using the Curie point depth mapping technique across BC to help guide geothermal exploration programs.
