Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report presents summary of 2014 reconnaissance work in the northwestern Cordillera (NW BC and SW Yukon) that was focused on establishing regional geochemical and geochronological database of plutonic and volcanic rocks that host base metal, gold and Ni-PGE alloy potential. Fieldwork was conducted and representative samples collected in Dease Lake, Atlin and Marsh Lake areas. In addition, archived samples were identified from these areas. Follow-up analyses of these samples will provide the base for establishing and integrated, predictive model for the oceanic crust in NW Cordillera.
