Listing of B.C. Mineral Deposit Profiles by Commodity Index 

Please select desired commodity (e.g. garnet, limestone, bituminous coal) by alphabetic category.  Note that metals are listed by their elemental symbol (e.g. Au, Cu, Fe).  Any commodity or symbol followed by an asterisk is either a byproduct or seldom produced from that particular deposit type.  Any BC deposit profile #s with an asterisk have no completed deposit profile.  USGS deposit model #s with an asterisk had no published model in the late 1990s.


While the list is lengthy, it is not complete.  It is published in Open File 1996-13.  The list includes multiple entries for almost all deposit types.
