The British Columbia Geological Survey (BCGS) has over 33,500 approved mineral exploration assessment reports filed by the exploration and mining industry since 1947. These reports provide information on geological, geophysical, geochemical, drilling and other exploration-related activities throughout B.C. These reports have been scanned and are now available for viewing/printing from this website.
ARIS (Assessment Report Indexing System) greatly assists users in locating specific assessment reports for viewing or downloading, and provides brief report summaries including the ability to import text files containing assessment report numbers.
The ARIS MapBuilder can be used to quickly produce maps to partially fulfill assessment reporting requirements. This map can also be used to create basic maps for the Mineral and Coal Exploration Notice of Work Application.
