Central B.C. has yielded some important copper and copper-gold deposits over the years resulting in mineral discoveries that led to the opening of the Mount Polley and Gibraltar mines in the southern portion of the target area and the ongoing exploration of the Mt. Milligan copper-gold deposit to the north. Large parts of this area still remain largely unexplored due to a cover of glacial material (sand and gravel) in the region. The QUEST project was designed to help "see through" this cover of glacial material to the prospective rocks below using leading-edge exploration technologies.
This data release is on the airborne electromagnetic (EM) survey of central B.C. collected by Geotech Ltd., from Aurora Ontario, with TRK Helicopters (BC) Ltd., based in Langley BC. The electromagnetic survey will help identify different rock types that may be associated with mineralization, and will aid in determining the thickness of glacial cover.
