South central British Columbia till sampling, 1996-1998



Project Description

Detailed soil and till surveys were carried out in eight areas of south central British Columbia near Adams Lake.  The surveys were carried out to study the geochemical response of precious and polymetallic volcanogenic sulphide (VMS) deposits in Kootenay terrane rocks and to develop models for portraying the essential characteristics of geochemical dispersion for different elements in surficial deposits.  These models aim to assist in the design of geochemical surveys and to simplify the interpretation of geochemical data.  The data are published in British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines Open File 2000-31.
