Search Our Geofiles

The Geofiles collection is an extensive repository of documents on the Geoscience of the province, including mineral-exploration assessment reports, published reports and maps, open file reports and maps, university theses, books and book excerpts, and unpublished reports and maps.

The mineral-exploration assessment reports contain company information on exploration activities including geochemical analysis, assays, drill-hole logs, geology, geophysics and mineralization, dating back to 1899.

Metadata on about 95% of these documents may be searched by bibliographic terms (e.g., author, title, date) geographic terms (e.g., NTS, area, province) geological terms (e.g., rock type, formation name, geological age) and mineral exploration term (e.g., deposit name, survey type).

The Geofiles collection can be searched online, through the Geofiles database and GeoScience OnLine, or via various in-house vehicles. Newly-posted Assessment Files can be found here.
