Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The discovery of new mines will rely on innovative methods. One of them is the thorough evaluation of existing geochemical data sets. In this scientific presentation, we use an analytical method called principal component analysis to evaluate the mineral potential of a vast region of British Columbia based on the geochemistry of a glacial sediment (till). We conclude that this approach can serve to detect copper mineralization concealed under a glacial sediment cover.
