AbstractThe last major ice sheet moved south to southeast across the map areas, and during deglaciation split into a network of glaciers flowing down the valleys to the sea. Surficial deposits are commonly below an elevation of 500 feet, and include laminated silts and clays, gravels, and stony till. Organic material from near Skutz Falls yielded a radiocarbon date of 21,070 + 270 years, and material from Cowichan Bay, 24,560 + 800 years.
