Geoscience BC's QUEST-Northwest Project is a multidisciplinary, integrated project designed to help focus mineral exploration in a highly prospective area of northwestern BC.

The project's main activities include: two airborne magnetic surveys flown at line spacing of 250 metres, bedrock geological mapping and a geochemical program.  Collectively these programs will provide detailed, high quality geoscience data that is intended to assist metallic mineral exploration in this area of highly prospective geology.

The QUEST-Northwest Dease Lake Geoscience project is a partnership between Geoscience BC and the BC Geological Survey and is the focus of this poster. 


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