Ultramafic Associated Chromite and Nickel Occurrences in British ColumbiaMicroform - 1991
This report records the most significant mafic-ultramafic-associated chromite and nickel occurrences in BC. While focusing on the chromite occurrences in the province, platinum group metals and nickel are also included. All known chromite and nickel occurrences are listed, using the MINFILE database as the initial data set. The report gives background information on chromite and its genesis; then details ophiolite-related deposits, Alaskan-type ultramafic bodies, and mafic-ultramafic-hosted nickel occurrences, by location. Where possible, detailed information is given on location, geology, mineralization, history and current claims, if any. Those locations where sufficient geological information is not available are listed by MINFILE number and geographical coordinates only.
