Geochemical Data Releases
August 23, 2007- Geoscience BC is pleased to announce that two new Geoscience BC Final Reports will be released in the next few weeks.
Geoscience BC Report 2007-6 "Regional Drainage Sediment and Water Geochemical Data South Nechako Basin & Cariboo Basin, Central British Columbia (parts of NTS 92N, O, P, 93A & B)" contains new lake sediment and water data, covering over 16,000 square kilometers in area of previously unsampled lakes in central BC, and represents a significant addition to the provincial geochemical database. Survey results include information on sample site locations, field observations and analytical data for a total of 1451 sample points. Each sample has been determined for a range of base metals, precious metals and path-finder elements using advanced multi-element analytical techniques.
This report will be released on Geoscience BC's website at noon on August 29, 2007. More information on this project can be found on the project page on Geoscience BC's website (GBC Project 2006-013).
Geoscience BC Report 2007-9 "Geoscience BC Mountain Pine Beetle Data Repository Version 1.0" compiles publicly available multimedia regional geochemical information for the core of the Mountain Pine Beetle Infestation Area of British Columbia. A digital database and associated geospatial base maps contain location information and a wide range of multi-element analytical results compiled from regional bark, lake, till and stream surveys. The database includes a total of 30,187 samples collected from 28,239 sites, covering over 250,000 square kilometers in BC's interior. A preliminary version of this database was released on CD at Roundup in January 2007.
This report will be released on Geoscience BC's website at noon on September 4, 2007. More information on this project can be found on the project page on Geoscience BC's website (GBC Project 2006-012).
