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.

The 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:
  • 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
Brief descriptions of each report are provided below. These reports are now available for download through Geoscience BC's website or through the Earth Science Viewer.
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
As part 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
This 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 area.
