The Zeballos Project consists of 45 crown granted mineral claims and 89 mineral claims located in the Zeballos mining camp, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada (Figure 1). The 45 crown granted mineral claims cover an area of hectares (Table 1).

The 89 mineral claims were staked using the British. Ina report published by the British Columbia Geological Survey states in its introduction that despite its history as an important gold producer in the ’s and ’s, the Zeballos mining camp remains “in all likelihood significantly underexplored” (Source: Geological FieldworkPaper ; Marshall, D., Close, S.

Some of the early mines in the area include King Midas. Tagore, Zeballos Camp and Privateer. Large-scale mining was conducted in the area until the s.

Recorded production for the camp totals kilograms of gold and kilograms of silver fromtonnes of ore mined (Fieldworkpage ). Most production came from the Spud Valley deposits (L and L ) and the Privateer. Mineral Deposit Profiles provide brief summaries of the types of mineral deposits found in British Columbia.

They include descriptions of host rocks, mineralogy, alteration, tectonic setting, British Columbia. book, genetic models, and exploration guides, and give typical examples with grades and tonnages.

Abstract. Exploration geologists in Canada have unparalleled access to glaciated outcrops, drill core, mine records, government and mine company reports, and leading-edge genetic models, from the Meguma of Nova Scotia to the mining camps of Ontario and Quebec to the mountains of British Columbia.

An area near Terrace, B.C., for which reserve and production information for 50 mineral deposits was available, was divided into 4-mile by 4-mile cells by random positioning of an appropriate grid. Geological variables were measured and estimates of value obtained for each cell.

The Privateer mine in located in Zeballos, BC, on the west side of Vancouver Island. Zeballos is named after Lt. Ciriaco Cevallos who was on board one of the early ships of the Spanish explorers from a voyage that was taken in Mining first got started in the area in with the first claims being up the Zeballos.

Inthe Bathurst Mining Camp accounted for 32 percent of the Zn, 80 percent of the Pb, and 25 percent of the Ag reserves (Minerals and Metals Sector, Natural Resources Canada).

The value of production from the Bathurst Mining Camp in exceeded $ million and accounted for 70 percent of total mineral production in New Brunswick. A production estimate of 40, dollars’ worth of fine gold is reported for the Bedwell River during the ’s through the ’s (Barlee, N.L.

(): The Guide To Gold Panning In British Columbia). At a ’s value of approximately 19 dollars a troy ounce this would have equalled approximately kilograms of gold. The Ridge deposit is covered by the Extension No.

The F.L. and Extension claims are owned by Falconbridge Nickel Mines Limited, and Zeballos Iron Mines Limited was mining the F.L. deposit under royalty agreement. A rational geological classification of the commonly recognized lode gold deposits is feasible if it is based on the geological settings of the deposits, host rocks, nature of mineralization and geoche m-ical signature.

Sixteen common types of bedrock gold deposits are distinguished from one another and their main geological attributes are. Razique received his and degrees from the University of Balochistan and PhD from the University of British Columbia – Mineral Deposit Research Unit in Following Ph.D.
