    Geological Provinces

    The geologic time scale divides the 4.6 billion years of earths history into hierarchy of time periods. Every layer of rock corresponds to a specific time in the history of the formation of the Earth. The Precambrian era began with the formation of the Earth; it was followed by the Paleozoic,...

    Noranda seismic; Line rbg00001; 2D seismic reflection

    The GSC obtained access to industry-owned seismic reflection data along two profiles crossing volcanic rocks of the Noranda mining camp. The integration of seismic data and 3-D geological provides new constraints on the deep geological framework.

    Hydrogeological Regions

    Hydrogeological regions are areas in which the properties of sub-surface water, or groundwater, are broadly similar in geology, climate and topography. Hydrogeology is the branch of geology that deals with the distribution and movement of water beneath the earth’s surface. This map shows Canada’s...

    Major Volcanoes

    There are many geologically active volcanoes along the Canadian Cordillera in British Columbia and the Yukon. Recurrent earthquakes below our feet and gigantic mountain ranges rising majestically upward remind us that this part of Canada is geologically active. The possibility of an eruption,...

    Normetal VSP; VSPs 2-3; vertical seismic profile

    The specific objectives of this project are to: 1) investigate the feasibility of DSI techniques for delineating geological contacts in the Normetal area, with a view toward more extensive application of this method for exploration in the future; 2) characterize the seismic response of an...

    Timmins Kidd Creek; VSP phase2; vertical seismic profile

    Surface-seismic profiling is well suited for geological provinces characterized by low-to-moderate dip, but it is less effective where dips exceed 65o due to inherent limitations of the recording geometry and processing algorithms. This project evaluated the effectiveness of VSP methods for...
