Project Location:  North Central, South Central

Strategic Focus Area:  Minerals, Energy-Geothermal


Geoscience BC's $4 million multi-year, multi-disciplinary Targeting Resources for Exploration and Knowledge (TREK) program generated earth science information to support mineral and geothermal exploration in British Columbia’s North Central and South Central regions. The TREK program covers a 24,000 square kilometre area between Anahim Lake in the west, Vanderhoof in the north and Williams Lake in the east. The Blackwater Gold Project is located in the centre of the program area, about 160 kilometres southwest of Prince George.


Reconnaissance Biogeochemical Survey using Spruce Tops: TREK Project Area (NTS 093C and 093F), Interior Plateau

This study conducted a helicopter-supported, spruce tree-top twig-and-needle survey to generate new geochemical information that can be used to help locate hidden mineralization and test the feasibility of a regional biogeochemical survey.
