This Geofile (with Appendices A-C) reviews the Mining of the BC Regional Geochemical Survey Database. Stream sediment and water sampling covers much of British Columbia and the multi-element geochemical data generated from the reconnaissance scale surveys helps locate hidden ore deposits.  This poster and accompanying text highlight new gold exploration targets that have been identified by interpreting regional stream sediment survey geochemistry.  Geofile 2007-9 also contains new data from the analyses of rock samples collected during geochemical surveys in the Lillooet area.


All publications of the BC Geological Survey are available digitally, free of charge, from this website.
