Geoscience BC Report 2013-07 is a 1:50 000 scale geology map of the Burrell Creek map sheet (NTS 82E/09) in southeast British Columbia, derived from new 1:20 000 scale mapping of selected areas of the Burrell Creek map sheet and compilation of previously existing regional geological, geophysical and geochemical data. This report includes shapefiles, RGS and Minfile compilations, and new Ar-Ar dates for the map sheet.

The Burrell Creek map sheet is located along the eastern edge of the Penticton (082E) sheet, 60 km northwest of the Rossland Gold camp and approximately 50 km northeast of the Greenwood camp. The Franklin camp, comprising numerous past producing precious metal-lead-zinc-silver deposits is located in the southwestern part of the sheet, and a few other mineral occurrences, of largely unknown character and age, are scattered throughout the rest of the map sheet. Recent exploration activity in the area has been largely concentrated in the immediate vicinity of the Franklin camp and in the Deer Park map sheet immediately to the south. An updated geology map for the Deer Park map sheet was released by Geoscience BC in 2010 as GBC Map 2010-07-1.
