Geoscience BC ICP-MS Reanalysis Project, 2008

Project Description

The reanalysis of archived stream sediment samples by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is accepted as a cost-effective means of obtaining new and improved regional geochemical information.  The use of ICP-MS provides a wide range of new analytical information at improved detection levels.

Stream sediment pulps from a 1978 GSC geochemical survey conducted by the British Columbia Geological Survey in the Terrace and Prince Rupert areas (NTS map sheets 103I and 103J) were reanalysed using ICP-MS.

The data are published in Geoscience BC Report 2008-11.


Project Funding

Funding was provided by Geoscience BC in partnership with the Terrace Economic Development Authority (TEDA), the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine through the Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT) and the KT Industrial Development Society (KTIDS).
