June 2013

Ongoing efforts by government-funded agencies to update and maintain the geochemical database established by the British Columbia Regional Geochemical Survey (RGS) and the National Geochemical Reconnaissance programs have produced one of the most comprehensive collections of field information and multi-element analytical data in Canada (Jackaman, 2011; Jackaman and Lett, 2013). The database has benefitted from a series of large-scale reanalysis initiatives that have been sponsored by Geoscience BC since 2007.  Added Geoscience BC Reports:

2013-09: Nelson (082F) Sample Reanalysis (ICP-MS);

2013-04: Lardeau (082K) Sample Reanalysis (ICP-MS)

2013-06: McLeod Lake (093J) Sample Reanalysis (INAA)

2013-11: Regional Stream Sediment and Water Geochemical Data, 
                Northern Vancouver Island (092K, 092L, 102I); and

2013-08: Ice Flow Patterns in 093G, & J, and Detailed Ice Flow History for
                093J.
