Geoscience BC Report 2016-10

A geo-exploration atlas of the Mount Polley porphyry copper-gold district, south-central British Columbia
by F.A.M. Devine, P. Kowalczyk, D.R. Heberlein and W. Kilby

Report Description
This atlas combines the most up-to-date geological mapping in the Mount Polley district with available exploration datasets from historical geophysical and surface geochemical surveys. Valuable data contributions from Imperial Metals Corp have enriched the Atlas significantly. Maps are at scales of 1:250,000, 1:50,000 and 1:20,000, allowing comparision between the regional and more specific district-scale features that characterize Mount Polley.

This report is part of the broader "Porphyry Integration Project", which pulls together historical geoscience data in key BC porphyry districts, in order to better understand the deposit footprint. The first atlas, focused on the Endako porphyry molybdenum district, is available as Geoscience BC 2015-08.

Report Components
Each package includes geochemical data, maps and the .mpk package for the deposit, as well as the summary report.
