Geoscience BC Releases Report 2011-1: Summary of Activities 2010

January 26, 2010 -Geoscience BC is pleased to announce the release of Geoscience BC Summary of Activities 2010, Report 2011-1.

This annual technical publication includes twenty-five papers which highlight the work of current Geoscience BC projects. The entire volume is accessible online from the Summary of Activities section of Geoscience BC's website, and limited print and CD versions of the volume will be available Wednesday and Thursday (January 26 and 27) at Geoscience BC's booth at AME BC's Mineral Exploration Roundup conferenceat the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver.

Geoscience BC

Geoscience BC is an industry-led, industry-focused not-for-profit society. Its mandate includes the collection, interpretation and marketing of geoscience data and expertise to promote investment in resource exploration and development in British Columbia. Geoscience BC is funded through grants from the Provincial Government and works in partnership with industry, academia, government, First Nations and communities to attract mineral and oil & gas investment to BC.
