This atlas is a product of Geoscience BC's Porphyry Integration Project and was produced in partnership with Thompson Creek Mining Ltd.

The Endako Geo-exploration Atlas is a collection of over 30 maps that summarizes the geology, geophysics and geochemistry of the Endako porphyry molybdenum district. Early exploration data as well as geological mapping at the district and mine scales are combined with more recent geophysics and satellite imagery to provide an integrated, exploration-oriented view of BC's premier porphyry molybdenum district.

On January 24, 2013, Geoscience BC released three 1:50 000 scale maps as part of the " Iskut River Area Geology, Northwest BC (104B/08, 09, 10 & part of 104B/01, 07, 11)." These three maps have now been compiled into a single map that covers the same area of approximately 1512 km2 and includes NTS map sheets 104B/08, /09, /10 and parts of 104B/01, /07, /11. The map illustrates the complex volcano-sedimentary stratigraphy, structural architecture and intrusive complexity of this highly prospective region of the province and provide some of the most detailed and comprehensive mapping data available to the public for this region.
