The Ministry of Forests and Range requested that I.R. Wilson Consultants Ltd. develop an archaeological predictive model (APM) for the Prince George Forest District (PGFD) in the central interior of British Columbia (Figure 1). Although a model previously developed for Canadian Forest Products Ltd. in Prince George (Brulotte and Canuel n.d.) has been in some use in recent years, creation of an updated model was felt advisable to address some previously-identified data gaps (Heffner et al. 2002) and which would be based on a greatly expanded PGFD site inventory over the last few years. The Brulotte and Canuel (n.d.) model is not map-based and does not meet current provincial standards and guidelines.
This report represents the conclusion of Phase I and Phase II of the model project. Phase I relates to information gathering and Phase II relates to the development of a working model. Phase III and IV relate to an approach to field testing and model verification respectively. However, some preliminary discussions of future project phases is included in the report to help guide these phases in the future.
