Launching the Earth Science Viewer and New Data
Our business is generating and delivering earth science data to stimulate
investment, employment and responsible development in British Columbia.
We're improving the delivery method by launching Earth Science
Viewer - an online tool that consolidates all project and report data
released through Geoscience BC and its project proponents. |
After a period
of beta testing earlier in 2015, we are officially launching the new and
improved Earth Science Viewer at Geoscience BC Day on Oct 8, 2015.
HTML5 site can be viewed cross-platform and provides users with simple
mapping functionality and basic geoprocessing tasks through a web browser
without the need for specialized GIS software.
Geoscience BC are
also pleased to announce the release of four new reports:
Brief descriptions of each report are provided below. These reports
are now available
for download through Geoscience BC's website or through the Earth
- Report 2015-08: A Geo-exploration Atlas of the Endako Porphyry
Molybdenum District (FINAL version)
- Report 2015-10: Preliminary Geological Map of the TREK Project Area,
Central British Columbia
- Report 2015-12: egional Geochemical and Mineralogical Data - TREK
Project Year 2, Interior Plateau, British Columbia
- Report 2015-15: Toward an Improved Basis for Beneath-Cover Mineral
Exploration in the QUEST Area, Central British Columbia: New Structural
Interpretation of Geophysical and Geological Datasets
Geoscience BC Report 2015-08: A Geo-exploration Atlas of the Endako
Porphyry Molybdenum District
An atlas of maps combining early
exploration data and geological mapping with more recent geophysics and
satellite imagery to provide an integrated, exploration-oriented view of
BC's premier porphyry molybdenum district.
Geoscience BC Report 2015-10: Preliminary Geological Map of the TREK
Project Area, Central British Columbia
A draft version of the
interpreted surface-of-bedrock geology of the under-explored TREK study area in British
Columbia's Interior Plateau. The region is widely considered to have high
exploration potential but the bedrock geology is poorly understood due to
the masking effects of recent volcanic and sedimentary deposits.
Geoscience BC Report 2015-12: Regional Geochemical and Mineralogical
Data - TREK Project Year 2, Interior Plateau, British Columbia
of the larger TREK
project, this contains geochemical and mineralogical data obtained from
analysis of basal till samples that were collected throughout the area
since 2013. Over 500 till samples were analysed and the results are
provided in digital format and as maps.
Geoscience BC Report 2015-15: Toward an Improved Basis for Beneath-Cover
Mineral Exploration in the QUEST Area, Central British Columbia: New
Structural Interpretation of Geophysical and Geological Datasets
study takes a fresh look the QUEST area, focusing on the
interpretation of magnetic and gravity data as it relates to the structural
architecture and bedrock geology. The data can be used as a base layer for
exploration for Porphyry style deposits in this highly prospective
