Quantec surveys involved in 9 of B.C.’s top 10 discoveries since 1980

Quantec surveys a key ingredient for success

An article highlighting British Columbia’s “top 10 mineral deposit discoveries in the last 35 years” is featured in the Spring 2016 issue of AMEBC’s Mineral Exploration magazine. Quantec surveys have been conducted at 9 of the 10 properties, and in some cases played an important role in taking properties from prospect stage to economically viable mining project. Quantec added value in a number of ways, including identifying previously overlooked mineralized zones, seeing deeper than conventional methods, and guiding successful drill programs.

 

The discoveries making up the list are:

 

1. Eskay Creek

 

2. Brucejack   

  • Transitional epithermal Au-Ag in stockwork veining
  • SPARTAN MT in 2012

3. Red Chris  

  • Cu-Au-Ag porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2010

4. Mount Milligan   

  • Cu-Au porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2010

5. Kemess   

  • Cu-Au porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2006, 2008

6. Blackwater  

  • Low sulphide epithermal Au-Ag deposit
  • TITAN 24 in 2010, 2012, 2014; SPARTAN MT in 2013

7. Huckleberry  

  • Cu-Mo porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2011, 2013

8. Kerr-Sulphurets-Mitchell (KSM)   

  • Au-Cu-Mo porphyry
  • SPARTAN MT in 2012, 2014

9. Mount Polley   

  • Cu-Au-Ag porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2010

10. New Afton   

  • Cu-Au porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2008

 

The global track record shows that Quantec’s deep, high resolution surveys are a common factor contributing to successful mining projects.
