Title: Developments in Western Canada in 1962

Author(s): T. J. Latus (2)


Over-all exploration activities (as reflected by expenditures of about $260 million) in Western Canada during 1962 showed a slight increase over 1961. A rise in wildcat drilling in Saskatchewan and Alberta, and increased Crown Land bonuses in British Columbia, were largely offset by decreased land bonuses in Alberta. Seismic work remained at about the 1961 level and still 6% above the 1960 low, but surface mapping declined for the third consecutive year in all areas except British Columbia. Alberta continued to lead other provinces by a substantial margin in all phases except surface mapping.

Comparisons below are with 1961.
