Archeological Studies

West Coast Placer specializes in facilitating the Notice of Work (NOW) permit process for miners in British Columbia through targeted archaeological assessments and studies. Our primary goal is to streamline the path for mining and exploration projects, ensuring compliance with provincial regulations regarding archaeological sites.

Our services are designed with the mining industry in mind, leveraging the expertise of our on-staff professional archaeologist to conduct necessary assessments efficiently and effectively.

Archaeological Overview Assessments (AOAs)
AOAs serve as a preliminary step, utilizing desktop analysis to evaluate the archaeological potential of a given area based on existing data. This approach helps in planning and mitigating potential impacts on undiscovered archaeological sites, streamlining the permit process.

Preliminary Field Reconnaissance (PFRs)
PFR studies involve a field evaluation to further assess the archaeological potential of the project area. These studies are carried out in accordance with best practices, ensuring thorough documentation and reporting of findings.

Archaeological Impact Assessments (AIAs)
When deeper investigation is necessary, AIAs are conducted under permit to include subsurface investigations and, if needed, artifact collection. This level of assessment is crucial for detailed understanding and mitigation planning, supporting the advancement of the mining project within regulatory frameworks.

West Coast Placer is committed to assisting the mining industry in British Columbia by providing essential archaeological assessment services. Our focus is on enabling mining projects to proceed smoothly by addressing archaeological considerations efficiently, thereby supporting the project’s compliance with provincial regulations.
