Vancouver Island Data Reanalysis Project

Lead Researcher(s):  W. Jackaman

Project ID:  2009-020

Key Research Organization(s):  Noble Exploration Services Ltd.

Project Location:  Vancouver Island

Strategic Focus Area:  Minerals


The primary objective of the Vancouver Island Geochemical Data Reanalysis Project was to stimulate mineral exploration interest in the region by providing the mining and exploration community with new, high-quality analytical information. Geoscience BC has supported the reanalysis of moss-trapped stream sediment samples originally collected in the late 1980s from creeks located on Vancouver Island by the BC Geological Survey and the Geological Survey of Canada. These samples have been recovered from storage and analyzed for 51 elements by aqua-regia digestion followed by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and Pt and Pd by fire assay.
