About Geoscience BC Report 2014-09 / BCGS Geoscience Maps 2014-01 & 2014-02 T. Ferbey, BCGS
The Nadina River and Colleymount map areas are in the Nechako Plateau, a subdivision of the Interior Plateau with flat to gently rolling topography. The area has an extensive drift cover and sparse bedrock outcrop. These maps are an ancillary product of earlier work devoted to till geochemistry (GBC Reports 2010-10 and 2011-09, or BCGS Open Files 2010-07 and 2011-06), and are based on air photo interpretation and widely spaced ground observations.
These maps are the final deliverables for Geoscience BC Project "Till Geochemistry of Tahtsa Lake District North and Adjacent Areas, West-Central British Columbia -- A Key Ingredient for the Discovery of New Porphyry, VMS, and Polymetallic Vein Mineralization", a Geoscience BC -- British Columbia Geological Survey partnership project. For more information on this project, including previous reports, go to www.geosciencebc.com/s/2008-031.asp.
Geoscience BC is a non-profit organization that receives funding from the Provincial Government. Our mandate is to attract mineral and oil & gas investment to British Columbia through generating, interpreting and publicly distributing geoscience data in partnership with First Nations, communities, governments and industry.www.geosciencebc.com Follow Geoscience BC on Twitter at twitter.com/geosciencebc!
