The Telkwa coalfield in northwest B.C. extends for approximately 50 kilometres along the Bulkley River, from north of the Town of Smithers to south of the Village of Telkwa. Historically, thermal coal was mined from the coalfield in the early part of the 20 th century to heat homes locally.

The Wellington Seam in the Nanaimo Coalfield of Vancouver Island has contributed significantly to British Columbia's coal production since its discovery in Difficult geological conditions and conflicts between surface land use and mining activities have hampered the efficient development of coal mines in the Wellington Seam.

This study contributes to the assessment of the coal resources.

The geology of British Columbia is a function of its location on the leading edge of the North American mountainous physiography and the diversity of rock types and ages hint at the complex geology, which is still undergoing revision despite a century of exploration and mapping.

The country's most prominent geological features are mountain ranges, including the North American. the Hazelton-Telkwa area and with it a major highway (Figure 2). A road is present from Dease Lake south to the Terrace area.

A rail line has been proposed and partially constructed by British Columbia Railways between Dease Lake and Prince George. Airport facilities.
