The 1990 survey was conductd by the BCMEMPR and was funded in part by the Sustainable Environment Fund (SEF) of the British Columbia Ministry of the Environment, and the Canada - British Columbia Mineral Development Agreement (1985-1990).

The 1990 RGS program was managed by BCMEMPR staff P.F. Matysek and W. Jackaman.
