A two-year reconnaissance-scale stream and glacial sediment sampling project, funded by Geoscience BC and the Geological Survey of Canada, was implemented by the Geological Survey of Canada in 2005 with the objective of evaluating the potential for diamond-bearing kimberlite, gold, base metal and other economic commodities in northeast BC.
