Geoscience BC Releases Report 2010-12: QUEST-West Project Compilation Maps

December 16, 2010- Geoscience BC is pleased to announce the release of Geoscience BC Report 2010-12: "QUEST-West Project Compilation Maps".

Report 2010-12 contains the final version of a suite of maps prepared for the QUEST-West project, mapping public geology, geophysics, geochemistry and topography data for the QUEST-West project area. Apart from the addition of mineral occurrences data that was updated in Fall 2010, there are no further changes to the data on the maps since the last draft version available on the QUEST-West project page.

Below is the list of maps included in the compilation:

  • Map 2010-12-1: QUEST-West Project - Geology
