AbstractOperation Amadjuak, a helicopter-supported project, completed the geological reconnaissance of that part of Bafin Island that lies south of latitude G6" N and southwest of Cumberland Sound, an area. of about 50,000 square miles. Southern Baffin Island is composed primarily of a wide variety of metamorphic rocks, which on the basis of the few currently available isotopic age determinations, are all part of the Churchill Structural Province. Palaeozoic carbonate and argillaceous carbonate rocks outcrop to the south and northwest of Amadjuak Lake. Several small outliers including Silliman's Fossil Mount occur between the main outcrop area and Frobisher Bay. A Middle Ordovician age has tentatively been assigned to the Palaeozoic rocks
