Mining geoscience data mapped in British Columbia

In January 2021, Geoscience BC published a report and data from a Purple Rock Inc. project that made it possible to search reports from 2004 to 2019 by location. Now a new project has added reports from 2019 to 2021, including some previously missing data and merged data from both projects into one dataset.

In total, 1,262 NI 43-101 reports relating to mineral exploration and development in BC can now be searched by location. In addition, the two projects have now added or updated 4,376 mineral occurrences to the BC Geological Survey’s MINFILE database.

“These projects make it easy to access data that would otherwise be extremely difficult and time consuming to access,” Geoscience BC Vice President, Minerals Christa Pellett said in a media statement.

“It’s a great way for the mineral exploration and development sector, governments, Indigenous groups and communities to access key geoscience information from throughout British Columbia”

The geolocated NI 43-101 reports can be accessed via Geoscience BC’s Earth Science Viewer, the Geoscience BC website and on the BC Geological Survey’s MapPlace2.
