The Exploration section of the MINFILE/pc program was built for the use of the Regional Geology offices. It can also be used by anyone who has a copy of the MINFILE/pc V. 4.0 or higher program. However, the data is not maintained or distributed by the Geological Survey Branch. If interested in this section, refer to the Exploration Coding Manual and/or the MINFILE/pc User’s Manual. A coding form for the Exploration Database is included in Appendix XII.
