Survey Description


In 1995, detailed drift exploration studies were undertaken on five porphyry-related copper properties: Babs, Hearne Hill, Lennac Lake, Bell Mine (Newman Peninsula) and Saddle Hill.  These properties are located in the Fulton Lake and Old Fort Mountain map areas, on the northern Nechako Plateau, central British Columbia.

A total of 173 sediment samples were collected from the five properties.  Basal till was the preferred sample medium.  Colluvium, supraglacial till, glaciofluvial and other sediments were also sampled. At Babs and Hearne, samples were collected along pre-cut grid lines at a spacing of 200 to 400 metres.  Elsewhere sampling was completed along roads accessible by truck or foot traverse at 250 to 1000 metre intervals.

A summary of the work can be found in British Columbia Geological Fieldwork 1995, Paper 1996-1.
