New from the P-files

The Geological Survey is pleased to provide its mineral exploration clients with an update on a recently completed technical review of its collection of historic exploration files. This collection includes non-confidential technical material (informally known to current users as 'p-files') donated to the Department of Natural Resources. These reports are currently housed at the Geological Survey, in hard copy format only.

Following the review, a selection of these archived files was scanned, and made available as online GeoFiles. For your convenience, a linked list of these new GeoFiles is available below.

As review of this collection continues, new files will be periodically added to this list.  New additions will be flagged as such.

These new GeoFiles include information from regional, grass-roots surveys, most of which were completed in the period 1980-1990, and not previously reported upon in submitted assessment reports. The information is pertinent to exploration for a variety of commodities, most notably gold.
