This database of private aggregate pits in British Columbia was compiled in 1996 as part of the BC Geological Survey Branch's Aggregate Inventory Project. In this compilation, private pits were considered to be only those natural aggregate occurrences for which an application by an operator for a Notice of Work had been received and subsequently issued by the Ministry of Employment and Investment. All other pits, including public pits operated by the Ministry of Transportation and Highways, are not included. Information about each pit in the database file includes its location (both latitude/longitude and UTM coordinates), NTS map sheet number, Notice of Work file number and status (active/inactive) and the type of landform hosting the pit. The inventory can be viewed on the MapPlace Aggregate Potential Maps
