by Z.D. Hora


View GeoFile 2008-4 (PDF, 11.2 MB)


GeoFile 2008-4 is part of a Provincial program to stimulate mineral exploration and economic diversification within British Columbia communities which have been adversely impacted by the Mountain Pine Beetle. Southern interior portions of British Columbia that have been most severely affected by the Mountain Pine Beetle are included in the Beetle Impacted Zone (BIZ).


Geofile 2008-4 includes the digital version of a poster display created to heighten awareness about the potential for industrial mineral discovery and development within the BIZ. Information on product value, markets and exploration criteria are presented. This poster will be of most interest to those with a budding interest in industrial mineral exploration in Interior British Columbia. This poster was first presented at the Mineral Exploration Roundup 2008, in Vancouver.


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