Interior Plateau Prorgram, British Columbia, 1991-1995

Project Description

The Interior Plateau Program was an initiative that was funded by and operated under the guidelines of the Mineral Development Agreement 1991-1995 (MDA). It was a collaborative effort involving scientists from both the Geological Survey of Canada and British Columbia Geological Survey Branch working on several multidisciplinary projects throughout the Interior Plateau region of British Columbia.  Projects included bedrock and surficial geology mapping, lake sediment and till sampling as well as mineral deposit studies.  Studies of the Babine porphyry copper belt were carried out in this project.

Data from some projects in this program can be found in the following publications:

Area NTS Collection Year Publication
Manson River, Fort Fraser 93K, N 1990-1991 GSC OF 2593 (preliminary results)
Manson River, Fort Fraser 93K, N 1992-1994 GSC OF 3194 (final report; includes data from OF 2593)
Nechako River 93F multiple GSC OF 4166*
Fawnie Creek 93F/3 1993 BCGS OF 1994-18
Chedakuz Creek 93F/7 1994 BCGS OF 1997-11
CH, Blackwater-Davidson and Uduk Lake properties 93F/2, 7, 8, 12 1994 and 1995 BCGS OF 1997-12

A summary of the project can be found in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 3448/British Columbia Ministry of Employment and Investment Paper 1997-2. Some of these data are also part the following compilations: GSC OF 4356/BC MEMPR OF 2001-9 and GSC OF 5623/BC MEMPR OF 2007-10.

The data from the Manson River and Fort Fraser map areas can also be found as part of a compilation in GSC Open File 2270 which contains data for samples from NTS 93K, N and F, collected in both this project and the Nechako NATMAP project.

*GSC Open File 4166 compiles all published and unpublished data from the Nechako River map area (93F) collected by the GSC and the BCGS, including data collected under the Nechako NATMAP Project.
