Free Geoscience BC Minerals Webinar: Golden Triangle Public Data

Vancouver, BC – September 18, 2020 – A free Geoscience BC webinar on September 29 will show how the mineral exploration sector can collaborate to create a valuable new public dataset in northwest British Columbia’s Golden Triangle, and highlight existing data available in the area.

The event is part of Geoscience BC’s Golden Triangle Geophysics Data Compilation Project, which is improving the quality and coverage of publicly accessible geophysical data in the Golden Triangle by acquiring and publishing privately held geophysical data.

Geoscience BC Vice President, Minerals, Christa Pellett encouraged anyone with properties in the Golden Triangle to join the webinar. “Several companies are already taking part in this project,” she said. “They know value of improving public data for the area, and that the project can also guide future public geoscience programs.”

The event will also feature a short presentation from Geoscience BC on existing public geoscience available for the Golden Triangle.

The Golden Triangle is BC’s most active mineral exploration area. It hosts several operating and past-producing mines as well as hundreds of mineral exploration and early mine development projects.

Golden Triangle Public Data: Geoscience BC Webinar will take place from 10:00 to 11:00 AM (PST) on Tuesday, September 29, 2020. Free registration is mandatory and will be closed the at the start of the event.
