They were re-calibrated to map the characteristics of surrounding bedrock and sediment in order to identify the location of potential aquifers in the region.Information on the study, which was completed with Petrel Robertson Consulting Ltd. and Quaternary Geosciences, is being used to support and confirm data collected from the airborne geophysical survey of the Peace Region to improve technical knowledge on the extent and accessibility of underground saline and non-saline water resources in the area.Raw data on the aquifer report can be found here, and information on the Quaternary Sediments report is available here. VANCOUVER, B.C. — Data on groundwater resources in the Peace Region has been released by Geoscience BC, aiming to improve understanding of shallow saline and non-saline aquifers in the area.A SkyTEM Survey Report was conducted in July and August of last year, over 43 days and 8,000 square kilometres between Hudson’s Hope, Fort St. John and Pink Mountain.Researchers flew 20,099 line-kilometres along 400 metre-spaced lines. To put that in perspective, that’s the equivalent of driving across Canada three times.- Advertisement -Carlos Salas, Vice President, Energy, Geoscience BC, says the information released today is raw data from the project’s airborne electromagnetic survey.“As we gain a better understanding of the geology of this region, Geoscience BC along with our partners will develop detailed maps of the area which will help First Nations, local communities, government and the resource sector make more transparent and informed decisions on sustainable groundwater management,” he said.Geoscience BC also released a report on its assessment of the shallow geology over the project area, which will be used to better understand the region’s geology and hydrogeology. Gamma ray logs ran through the surface casing of approximately 1,300 petroleum boreholes.Advertisement

Kolkata: Within two months after Bengal was declared the best quality milk producing state in the country, the Mamata Banerjee government has taken a move to set up a milk producing unit in South 24-Parganas.It may be recalled that the Centre’s National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) awarded Sundarini Naturals, which is a brand of the Sunderban Cooperative Milk and Livestock Producers’ Union Limited, for its superior quality dairy products. It was awarded at a function organised on World Milk Day on June 1.

Sources said the work to prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) has been initiated. The work to identify the place has also started. It is learnt that two locations including one at Mathurapur in South 24-Parganas have been identified. But the final decision on the location of the plant is yet to be taken up.According to the sources in the state secretariat, the plant will come up at a cost of around Rs 30 crore. If everything goes as planned, then there will be production of 20,000 litre of milk every day and the quantity will be increased to 50,000 litre daily in phases. Besides packaged milk, the products under the brand of Sunadarini Naturals include ghee, honey, rice, sona moong dal, eggs and paneer.It may be mentioned that after the success of becoming the best in producing dairy products in the country, steps were also taken for diversification of products by introducing sweets like Kaju Barfi, Rosogolla andGulab Jamun.With the setting up of the unit in South 24-Parganas, the total milk production in the state will also go up. At the same time, it will also be a means of livelihood for many. The dream project of the Chief Minister will reach a new height.
