AbstractDevonian rocks occur in two intracratonic basins in the Hudson Bay region of Canada: the well-known Moose River Basin in the south and the Hudson Bay Basin to the north, separated by the prominent northeast-trending Cape Henrietta Maria Arch. Only part of the Devonian succession of the Hudson Bay Basin is present on the mainland, the remainder being covered by water of Hudson Bay. Lower Devonian rocks in the southeastern part of the Moose River Basin comprise the upper carbonate member of the Kenogami River Formation (Gedinnian); the extremely fossiliferous limestones and less numerous dolomites of the Stooping River Formation (Siegenian and Emsian); and the continental, plant-bearing clastic beds of the Sextant Formation (Emsian). Middle Devonian strata comprise coral and stromatoporoidal bituminous limestones of the Kwataboahegan Formation (early Eifelian); gypsum, limestones, dolomites and brecciated carbonates of the Moose River Formation (mid-Eifelian) ; fossiliferous limestones of the Murray Island Formation (late Eifelian); and the lower shale and upper carbonate members of the Williams Island Formation (Givetian, and possibly early Frasnian at the top). The Upper Devonian rocks consist of dark bituminous shales and mudstones of the Long Rapids Formation (Frasnian and early Famennian). The Devonian succession is similar lithologically and faunally to that in the Allegheny and Michigan Basins to the south, and bears some resemblance to that in the Williston Basin to the southwest. Unconformities of wide regional extent are present at three horizons in the sequence; these occur in the early Siegenian, late Eifelian, and early Givetian. A possible fourth break may occur in the early Frasnian.
