CLOSED: Analysis and Follow-up of QUEST and QUEST-West Project Geoscience Data

In support of its mandate to undertake geoscience to attract exploration investment to BC, Geoscience BC is pleased to issue this request for proposals (RFP) for projects to analyze and/or undertake ground follow-up on geoscience data acquired in the Geoscience BC QUEST and QUEST-West Projects. Submissions from industry, academia, government, First Nations, communities or not-for profit organizations are welcome.

QUEST and QUEST-West Project Background

The QUEST and QUEST-West Project geoscience data comprises geochemical data, airborne helicopter TEM and magnetic data, and airborne gravity data. As of the date of release of this RFP, all QUEST and QUEST-West Project data is publicly available on Geoscience BC's website, with the exception of QUEST-West new lake and stream sediment geochemical data, which will be released in the near future. Combined with pre-existing data in the project areas, such as geology, geochemistry, geophysics, etc. available from a variety of sources such as Geoscience BC, government (i.e. British Columbia Geological Survey, Geological Survey of Canada), industry, academic and other archival sources, this represents an immense data set that is ideal for data mining.
