Regionated KML files have been created to provide a lightweight and quick display of over 12,500 mineral occurrences on Google Earth®. An application has been developed to extract the data from the MINFILE database and style the occurrences based on their status.


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