This project will establish the geological and structural setting of mineralization in Barkerville, through compilation of historic data and structural mapping. A paragenesis of veins and rock fabrics, supplemented with Ar-Ar geochronology, will constrain the timing of progressive deformation and mineralization.
A parallel approach in the Cassiar and Sheep Creek camps will establish how structural evolution varied along strike in the eastern BC Cordillera. These products will benefit exploration companies and contribute to exploration investment interest in the gold potential of BC.
