Report Description

This map presents a draft version of the interpreted surface-of-bedrock geology of the TREK (Targeting Resources through Exploration and Knowledge) study area in British Columbia's Interior Plateau. This is a region that is widely considered to have high exploration potential yet is also considered underexplored. This is due to poorly understood bedrock geology which, in turn, is due to the masking effects of Eocene and younger basalt flows as well as glacial till. By carrying out targeted mapping during the summers of 2014 and 2015 in conjunction with processing and interpretation of geophysical data and compilation of previous mapping, we have developed a better understanding of the local bedrock geology. The improved geological map provides a valuable tool for identifying prospective regions in the TREK area, thus reducing the exploration risk. This is a draft release produced in partnership with the Mineral Deposit Research Unit at The University of British Columbia through Geoscience BC's TREK project.
