During the 2005 field season, Geoscience BC funded two reconnaissance-scale drainage sediment and water surveys that were successfully completed in previously unsurveyed regions of central British Columbia. These surveys are part of an ongoing effort to complete first-level geochemical coverage of the province and provide the mining and exploration community with new, high-quality geochemical information. The program will help to: outline regional geochemical trend; identify new exploration targets; and profile previously explored mineral properties. Each component of the work is being conducted according to National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) and BC Regional Geochemical Survey (RGS) program standards and specifications. Resulting digital data will fit seamlessly into current NGR and RGS databases, as well as complement other geoscience information available for the region. Regional geochemical surveys have been carried out in BC since 1976. A total of 45 1:250 000-scale NTS map sheets and numerous detailed studies have been published.
