Report Description

This report presents the final PDF map with accompanying data for the geology of the Mount Polley porphyry copper-gold deposit in central BC. The currently operating Mount Polley mine has focused on several individual mineralized zones that are hosted by hydrothermal breccias associated with emplacement of Late Triassic-age alkalic monzonitic to dioritic rocks within Quesnel terrane. This map is based on several years of work by Imperial Metals Corporation geologists and includes lithology and structural layers, as well as mineralization and alteration maps that draw on surface observations as well as the detailed drill hole database in the mine area. It was produced in partnership with Imperial Metals Corporation through Geoscience BC's Porphyry Integration Project.
