The province’s MINFILE mineral occurrence database was used to identify the major coal and mineral deposits, mines and past producers for British Columbia. A larger size threshold was used for identifying open pit mines than the criteria for underground mines. The deposits and mines are plotted on a 1:2M provincial geology map. The resulting map is useful for geologists, prospectors and others wishing to relate rich mineral resources to the geology of the province.
