List of ER Proposals (1985)

A list of proposed reserves are contained in this 42 page PDF document. It includes an original list from 1968 and then subsequent additions to the list from 1978 to 1984. 

Here is a link to the document:   1985 ER Program in BC : ER Proposals 

It is a scan of the original hardcopy files with handwritten notes. 

It contains both the proposed ER name and a tracking ER Proposal (ERP) number. It also indicates for each proposal the scientist or group who were presenting the proposal.

It shows the large number of reserves that were serious proposals. It begs the question “What happened to the reserves that were not created?”
