ProgramMountain Pine Beetle, Geoscience for Mountain Pine Beetle Response

AbstractThe Geological Survey of Canada hosted Geoscience Workshops in both Quesnel and Williams Lake, British Columbia, in mid-February 2009. These workshops were organized under the Mountain Pine Beetle program of Natural Resources Canada. Under this program, the Geological Survey of Canada coordinated a geoscience project to assist with diversifying the forest-dependent economies of central British Columbia that have been most significantly impacted by the Mountain Pine Beetle infestation. During the course of the project, a significant amount of new geoscience data and information was collected and distributed by the GSC and its partners in the British Columbia Provincial Government and Geoscience BC. This geoscience information is intended for use by the mineral and oil and gas exploration industries to help reduce their risk to explore for resources in the region.
Approximately 20 of the local First Nations were invited to participate in a two-way educational dialogue aimed at better understanding the potential resources of the region. As the First Nations are primary partners with these industries, and responsible for much of the local land use and planning, the workshops outlined the value, purpose, and uses of these publicly-available data sets.
