Vancouver, BC – February 4, 2020 Geoscience BC has announced two open house meetings to discuss the results from the Vancouver Island North Regional Project that were published at the AME Roundup 2020 conference on January 21, 2020.

The survey collected information about the magnetic properties of the rocks below the ground and the radiometric properties of rocks and soils near the surface, and covers approximately 20 per cent of Vancouver Island (6,127 square kilometres) stretching from Port McNeill in the north to Tahsis in the southwest.
