Southern Cordillera TGI-3 Biogeochemistry Project, 2005-2010
Vegetation studies were carried out in the areas of Bonaparte Lake, Mabel Lake and the Max and Gibraltar Mines. The goal of the project is to stimulate base metal exploration activities in southern British Columbia.
A summary of the sampling follows:
|Sampling Year||Area||Sample Type||GSC Publication|
|2006||Mabel Lake area (NTS 82L/09, 10)||Douglas fir tree tops||OF 5538|
|2007||outer bark from western hemlock and Douglas fir||OF 6147 (data from OF5538 + analysis of needles from archived DF tree tops+ outer bark from more detailed sampling)|
|2007||MAX moly mine (NTS 82K/12)||western redcedar twigs||Current Research 2009-2|
|2007 + 2008 + 2009||Bonaparte Lake area + Gibraltar Mine (92P, 93B/9)||bark, twigs from pine and spruce; twigs + foliage from redcedar; twigs, needles, bark from Douglas fir||OF 6726|
The Targeted Geoscience Initiative-3 (2005-2010) program focused on base metal reserves in established mining communities. TGI-3 provides integrated geoscience knowledge pertaining to areas of high base metal potential, with the intent of stimulating private-sector resource exploration. TGI is, by definition, a partnership program, delivered in collaboration with provincial geological surveys with participation by industry and universities (from http://www.nrcan.gc.ca/earth-sciences/about/current-program/targeted-geoscience/previous-initiatives/3722).
