CANADA – GEOSCIENCE BC SUPPORTS EXPLORATION FOR CRITICAL MINERALS
A new Geoscience BC minerals research project will update geology maps to support exploration for the critical minerals needed to meet Canada’s net-zero economy goals in the West Kootenays.
As the search for new deposits of critical minerals and metals continues in BC as a means to contribute to Canada’s net-zero economy goals, areas of historical mining activity are of interest as they may offer as yet undiscovered deposits. The West Kootenays in BC’s Southeast Region, site of historical mining camps such as Rossland, is one such area.
Led by Dr. Trygve Höy, the new project involves updating the western portion of the Nelson mapsheet (NTS 082F) through the compilation of existing geological data, augmented by field surveys and mapping. This project continues eastwards from similar work completed by Geoscience BC in the Boundary District. The maps and supporting new data will be publicly available to industry, Indigenous groups and local communities to inform decision-making around resource development. The project includes collaboration with the BC Geological Survey.
Based in Vancouver, Geoscience BC’s independent, public geoscience is a first link in the supply chain for Canada’s net-zero emissions economy.
