Working with the non-profit, Below BC, Aeonian is helping to conserve Legacy Collections of geological and technical documents, many of which are not in the public domain.
The documents have been acquired from geologists who have retired or sadly passed away. Aeonian and Below BC are working to digitize this information and make it available online. One of the benefits of this process has been the discovery of several “new” mineral showings, those lost to history or vital information on existing systems. We are currently finding that around 5% of the reports contain previously undocumented discoveries. Although this number sounds small, we are jointly working on a repository of over 10,000 documents that is growing each year.
