- Report Description
- This work was funded by Geoscience BC through the TREK Project, and was designed to compliment previous investigations on the potential for geothermal occurrences in the region as well as support local community interest in geothermal resources.
Since 2013, the TREK geothermal Phase 1 (report 2014-11) and Phase 2 projects (this report) have investigated geochemical evidence of possible geothermal - magmatic activity in the area of the Nazko bogs, through identification of the source for the anomalous geochemical patterns and explanation of the source for elevated mercury levels in soil. This Geoscience BC Report 2015-16 compiles all of the geochemical data generated from sampling conducted in 2013, 2014 and 2015 - including re-sampling and the analysis of ground and stream water from the North Bog, soil and tree bark sampling around the travertine cone -CO2 seep in the North bog, and sampling CO2 -rich seepage gas for 3He:/4He isotope analysis.
