Kenex has been working with the British Columbia Geological Survey (BCGS) since late 2020 to help them implement commodity based mineral potential mapping in several parts of the province. Their aim is to apply mineral systems-based mineral potential mapping across the province that can be used to make data-backed land use decisions as well as the provision of pre-competitive geoscience data for explorers.
Kenex are helping the survey to implement workflows similar to those that we developed with the Geological Survey of New South Wales on their successful 4-year state-wide mineral potential mapping project. We have been involved in training survey staff to become proficient at mineral potential mapping and are also undertaking technical work alongside the survey geologists.
The work we have done with the survey has been well received so far by their first nations client and the land use planning department.
