Since 1991 the BC Geological Survey and Geological Survey of Canada have carried out regional till geochemical surveys in the central and southern parts of the province and on Vancouver Island. More than 5700 samples of till have been collected and analysed for trace elements and major oxides.  Most results have been previously released by the BC Geological Survey, Geological Survey of Canada and Geoscience BC. 


Geofile 2008-13 is a Microsoft Excel spread sheet containing all of the analytical results published to date with additional previously unpublished data from the Mount Milligan area. All of the samples have been classified by bedrock geology and glacial sediment type based on information recorded in the data source document. A text file explaining the data file structure and with element statistics accompanies the data file.
