 Till Geochemical Exploration Targets, Babine Porphyry Copper Belt, Central British Columbia

By T. Ferbey, V.M. Levson, R.E. Lett

Geoscience BC Report 2009-10 / MEMPR Open File 2009-4 reports new till geochemical data from the Babine Porphyry Copper Belt in Central British Columbia. This digital release consists consists of a report plus an appendix containing raw data.

The clay-sized fraction of 533 archived basal till samples collected within the Babine porphyry copper belt was analyzed for 37 elements by aqua regia digestion followed by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). The spatial distribution of samples elevated in Ag, As, Cu, Hg, Mo, Pb, and Zn are the focus of this study. Data presented here confirm and further constrain previously identified till geochemical exploration targets within the Babine porphyry copper belt. These data also outline two new multi-element, multi-site till geochemical exploration targets.
