In 2003 the BC Ministry of Energy and Mines and the Geological Survey of Canada conducted a multisensor (gamma-ray spectrometric, magnetic total field) helicopter-borne geophysical survey in the Toodoggone area, British Columbia, Canada. Flight lines were oriented NE-SW, spaced at 400 m intervals. The survey was flown under contract, by Fugro Airborne Surveys. The survey was funded by the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines and Natural Resources Canada through the Targeted Geoscience Initiative, and by a consortium of companies including Bishop Resources Inc., Finlay Minerals Ltd., Northgate Exploration Ltd., Sable Resources Ltd., and Stealth Minerals Ltd.


This survey was published as the Toodoggone Geophysics Map to MapPlace on March 26, 2004.  The MapPlace data includes digital gridded images for 2 magnetic and 7 radiometric parameters for each survey area. The downloadable files from this website are in georeferenced TIF – tagged image and PNG formats (UTM NAD 83 and Albers projections) and GRD - Geosoft gridded data format (UTM NAD 83 only). PDF theme files are also available.  The full product release is available as Geological Survey of Canada Open Files 4606 - 4613.


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