This project resulted in the addition to Property File of 2860 documents and maps from the QUEST areas.  The items, which are from the Cyprus-Anvil, Chevron, Placer Dome and Rimfire collections, were scanned, indexed and cross-referenced with related MINFILE occurrences.  In total, 481 MINFILE occurrences were updated and 17 new MINFILE occurrences were identified.

 

Geoscience BC Report 2009-17 includes a description of the project, a table of the items added with links to the documents, and KML files for the 17 new and 481 updated MINFILE occurrences.  BCGS GeoFile 2009-10 compliments these components with display and links to reports of the new and updated occurrences on the BCGS Geoscience, Exploration Assistant, QUEST, and QUEST-West maps.  The download ZIP file contains extract tables from MINFILE and MapPlace.  The layers are located in the Mineral Inventory Layers group in the maps.
