View GeoFile 2009-8 (PDF, 22.9 MB)


This collaboration of the British Columbia Geological Survey, Geological Survey of Canada and Geoscience BC brings together experts in geophysical, geochemical, bedrock and surficial geology to use new information to create a better bedrock map for the poorly exposed region along the belt from Williams Lake north through Prince George to Williston Lake. It concentrates primarily on geophysical and geochemical data recently acquired by Geoscience BC through its QUEST Program. The new bedrock map will be made through a training and awareness raising workshop (done) and followup interpretation, drafting, evaluation and finalization of a the new map. The workshop was held March 11 - 13, 2009. The key output will be a digital map and database available from various sources including the BCGeoMap layer on


This poster highlights the project, its key data sets, its approach, the principle experts, some interesting geological interpretations and the anticipated product.


This work is a contribution to the Edges Project of the Natural Resources Canada, GeoMapping for Energy and Minerals Program (GEM).
