Geoscience BC Survey Yields Promising Results for West-Central BC
Vancouver, B.C. – A new survey conducted by Geoscience BC has indicated the potential for copper, silver and molybdenum deposits in the west-central areas of British Columbia.
The results were released this morning at the Association for Mineral Exploration Roundup conference in Vancouver.
“In 2016, three magnetometer-equipped Cessna aircraft flew over a 24,000-square kilometre region in west-central B.C., recording local magnetic variations caused by magnetic minerals in the upper region of the earth’s crust,” reads a statement released by the non-profit organization. “These magnetic signatures were mapped and provided data for explorers to analyze and focus their exploration efforts.”
President and CEO Robin Archdekin notes the survey is the largest its ever conducted.
“The area has well-established infrastructure including reliable road networks, a rail line, accessible hydro, and a skilled workforce, all helping to make this region a cost-effective area to explore and ultimately develop a mine.”
