GeoFile 2014-01: Lithogeochemical data from the Late Triassic Rayfield River nepheline-normative syenite pluton, 70 Mile House BC
Geofile 2014-1 contains analytical results from mineralized and unaltered, fresh samples collected during a two-week field investigation of the Rayfield River pluton, which was conducted as part of the ongoing BC Geological Survey’s Porphyry Deposit Initiative. The central Nicola Arc project focused on determining the geological setting, age, and style of copper-gold mineralization of the alkalic Rayfield River pluton (Late Triassic). The composition, age, and location of the Rayfield River pluton suggest that it is part of the highly prospective Late Triassic (205-200 Ma) Copper Mountain magmatic belt.
