Our independent earth science forges opportunities through earth science partnerships and

Our structure as an independent society allows us to be responsive and efficient. It allows us to build unique relationships with all levels of government, communities, Indigenous groups and the resource sector that are based on trust and backed by good science.

How We Work
We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, Support for the Board on technical matters is provided by volunteer Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) for minerals and mining, oil and gas and geothermal.

We seek collaborative and partnership projects that come with supportive funding. To date, projects funded include newly collected earth science data, new ideas and new technologies, compilations and reprocessing of existing data, and applications of existing technologies in new areas.

We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.
