About Geoscience BC Report 2012-11

This report delivers till geochemical and clast lithology data for the Bulkley River valley and adjacent areas (encompassing parts of NTS map areas 093L/07, /08, /09/, /10, /11, /15). The data was collected for the BCGS in 1996, as part of regional till sampling and Quaternary geology studies in the Babine porphyry copper belt of west-central BC. The BCGS project was in turn a component of a program of multi-disciplinary and collaborative research with the GSC, universities and the mining industry under the Nechako National Geoscience Mapping Program (NATMAP) in central BC. However, to date this till geochemical and clast lithology data has not been previously published.

This report provides information about the background geochemistry and Quaternary geology of this part of west-central BC. The release includes a written report, data in Microsoft Excel files and a Microsoft Access Database, and relevant shapefiles.
