Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This open file report presents the catalogue of earthquakes that occurred in the Horn River Basin, northeast British Columbia, in two time windows: July 2002 'June 2003 and December 2006' January 2012. An innovative method was used to locate the source locations of earthquakes when they were recorded by only one single seismograph station in the region. These events clearly demonstrate the changing seismic patterns before and after the local development of shale gas. In total, 24 events were identified and located during the pre-development period between July 2002 and June 2003, and 339 events during the after period. A detailed list of seismic phase picks used in the earthquake location process is also given for each event.
