AbstractThis report provides an update for geoscience projects carried out by the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) under the Interior Plateau Program, a multidisciplinary initiative that is part of the Canada-British Columbia Agreement on Mineral Development (1991-1995). The Interior Plateau is a favourable region for mineral deposits, but exploration has been hampered by an extensive blanket of plateau basalt and glacial drift. The GSC has completed regional airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys, bedrock and surficial geological mapping, till geochemistry, and a biogeochemical survey, as part of a regional program to assess the potential for buried mineralization. The current program concludes in 1994-1995.
