Abstract:
The Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) and the B.C. Geological Survey Branch (BCGS), together with researchers in universities and industry, have initiated a new geoscientific program in the Nechako Plateau area of central British Columbia. This area was selected because the existing geological database is poor. The first NATMAP program in British Columbia will address questions that will improve geological understanding of the area and to provide a guide for mineral exploration. The Nechako project is coordinated and funded by both the GSC and BCGS and the program is financially augmented by the GSC's National Mapping Program (NATMAP). More than fifty scientists from GSC, BCGS, Canadian Forest Service, universities in North America, Asia and Europe, and mining exploration companies are involved in the program. Results of 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. From 1995-2000, new regional and detailed geological and geophysical maps will be published for the Nechako River (93F), Fort Fraser (93K) and parts of Prince George (93G/12,13), Smithers (93L/16), Hazelton (93M/1), and Manson River (93N/4,5,12) map areas. In addition to hardcopy maps and reports, all data will be brought together into computer-accessible, GIS compatible format and made available on CD-ROM disks and through the Internet. As of February 22, 1999, there is one CD-ROM available. Its title is "Quesnel Trough: A Digital Suite of Geoscience Information" - Open File # 3273 (GSC) or #1996-19 (BCGS).To increase the geological understanding of the Nechako Plateau area and to provide a guide for mineral exploration.
