Poster Session (Monday, January 27th from 10 am to 5 pm) Geoscience BC will have several posters at the Mineral Exploration Roundup in Vancouver. This year, Geoscience BC proponents, associates and scholarship winners will exhibit 11 posters at the Roundup poster session, which will be held on January 27th from 10 am to 5 pm in the Westin Bayshore Ballroom. These posters highlight some of Geoscience BC's ongoing work around the province, including:
  • The TREK Project (new geophysics, geochemical and geothermal programs),
  • The Northern Vancouver Island Exploration Geoscience Project (geochemical reanalysis program),
  • Joint Geoscience BC - MDRU initiatives,
  • Geoscience BC projects in southeast BC and central BC, and
  • Updates from 2013 Geoscience BC Scholarship Winners.
The Geological Survey of Canada, BC Geological Survey and university students will also be displaying posters. The list of Geoscience BC-affiliated posters will soon be available through our website at: https://www.geosciencebc.com. Geoscience BC's website will be updated with PDFs of Geoscience BC-affiliated posters in early February.
Technical Session: Public Geoscience: A Resource for You (Tuesday, January 28th from 8:30 am to 11:30 am) Two talks in the session will give updates on Geoscience BC's TREK project (from 8:30 am to 11:30 am):
  • "Targeting Resources through Exploration and Knowledge (TREK): using regional and industry airborne magnetic data to uncover BC's northern Interior Plateau region" -- Peter Kowalczyk (PK Geophysics for Geoscience BC)
  • "Targeting basal till for geochemical and mineralogical surveys: Year 1 of the TREK geochemistry program" -- Dave Sacco (Geoscience BC)
The session also features talks from the BC Geological Survey, Geological Survey of Canada and the Yukon Geological Survey.
