Exploration of Metals in BC

ElderCollege Course

We have been exploring for metals in BC since the 1950's. The talks will be a non-technical look at this history - dominantly pre-1940 but with some personal excursions into more recent times. Topics include mineral claims - what were they, how were they acquired and named; transportation from beasts of burden to modern aircraft, boats, trains, trails and roads; and early Government surveys in support of mineral exploration. Illustrated with historical and personal photos. Instructor: Giles Peatfield
