Public Notice: Airborne Geophysical Survey in Northern Vancouver Island Area
Starting August 15, 2012, Geoscience BC, in partnership with the Island Coastal Economic Trust, will be conducting an airborne geophysical survey over part of Northern Vancouver Island. The survey is expected to be completed by mid-September, barring significant weather delays.
This survey will cover an area of approximately 3200 square km, covering northern Vancouver Island including Port Hardy and Port Alice. A map of the survey area can be viewed at http://www.geosciencebc.com/s/NorthernVancouverIsland.asp.
The purpose of the survey is to provide new geoscience information about the geology and mineral potential of the area, and stimulate new mineral exploration in the region.
The survey will be flown using a helicopter carrying sensing instruments flying a minimum of 80 metres above ground level. The survey will be conducted during daylight hours with no disruption to communities other than the occasional sound of low-flying aircraft.
