Geoscience BC Report 2017-04: 2016 RGS Sample Reanalysis Project

Ongoing efforts by Geoscience BC and government-funded agencies to update and maintain the geochemical databases established by the British Columbia Regional Geochemical Survey (BCRGS) and the National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) programs have produced one of the most comprehensive collections of field information and multi-element analytical data in Canada. To date, thousands of archived samples have been successfully reanalyzed using modern analytical techniques such as inductively coupled plasma--mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).

Geoscience BC Report 2017-04 presents results of a Geoscience BC--funded reanalysis project that was conducted in 2016. The samples acquired for reanalysis originated from surveys conducted in seven NTS map areas across the province (082G and J; 092N; 093E and H; 103O and P; 104N).
