Geoscience BC's Major Projects are designed and managed by Geoscience BC technical consultants and staff. As of July 2015, Geoscience BC has the following major projects:

QUEST Project Regional geophysics (airborne gravity and electromagnetics) and geochemistry in the Williams Lake-Prince George-Mackenzie region. Subsequent follow-up work has included analysis and inversion of datasets and updating the regional bedrock geology map. Project started in 2007.
QUEST-West Project Regional geophysics (airborne gravity and electromagnetics) and geochemistry in the Terrace-Burns Lake-Vanderhoof region. Project started in 2008.
QUEST-South Project Regional geophysics (airborne gravity) and geochemistry in the Willams Lake-Kamloops-Princeton region. Project started in 2009.
QUEST-Northwest Project Regional geophysics, geochemistry and geological mapping in northwestern BC. Project started in summer 2011.
Porphyry Integration Project Study of geochemical, geological and geophysical signatures for select alkalic and calc-alkalic porphyry districts. Project started in 2010.
Nechako Seismic Project Vibroseis seismic survey west of Quesnel. Seismic survey completed in 2008.
Horn River Basin Aquifer Project Aquifer study of the Horn River Basin. This project is a partnership project with the Horn River Basin Producers Group. Project started in 2009.
Montney Water Project Database compilation of surface water, ground water and deep saline aquifers in the Montney Shale Gas Play area. Project started in 2010.
Northern Vancouver Island Project Regional geophysics and geochemistry on northern Vancouver Island. Project started in summer 2012.
TREK Project Regional geophysics, geochemistry and mapping in central BC. The project also has a geothermal component. Project started in spring 2013.
PEACE Project Regional geophysics (airborne electromagnetics) and data compilation in the Peace District, northeastern BC. Information to contribute to the understanding of shallow groundwater aquifers in the project area. Conducted in partnership with NDIT, BC OGRIS, ConocoPhillips, Progress Energy. Project started in spring 2015.
SEARCH Project Regional geophysics (airborne magnetics) in the Bulkley-Stikine and Skeena Districts, north-central BC. Project started in summer 2015.
BC Natural Gas Atlas Project Project started in fall 2015.
