Geoscience BC Report 2014-10 contains digital data files of field observations and analytical results from the 2013 TREK Geochemistry program, which focused on the eastern portion of the TREK project area. The digital data includes site location information, field observations and analytical data for 677 basal till samples and 281 lake sediment and water samples collected as part of the 2013 TREK Project. The data files include the following:

  • till survey trace metal data
  • till survey gold grain data
  • till survey PCIM data
  • till survey pebble count
  • lake survey trace metal data

This information can be combined with the 2013 TREK Geophysical survey data and the Basal Till Potential Maps (BTPMs), that when combined, form a powerful tool for mineral exploration.
