Nechako NATMAP Project, biogeochemical component, 1996-2000

Project Description

As part of the Nechako NATMAP project in the Nechako Plateau area of central British Columbia, vegetation samples were collected in 1996, 1997 and 1998.  The purpose of the project was to increase the geological understanding of the Nechako Plateau area and to provide a guide for mineral exploration.  Bedrock and surficial mapping will be enhanced by integration with site and area specific studies of metallic and industrial mineral deposits, biostratigraphy, geochronology, stream and till geochemistry, biogeochemistry, airborne geophysics, seismology, and paleomagnetism.  The biogeochemical data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open Files 3587 (a-d), 3696 (a-d) and 3594 (a-d).  These data can also be found in GSC Open File 4356 as part of a geochemical compilation for the Nechako Project.
