AbstractBuried valleys (BV) have been identified in Southern Ontario since the late 19th Century but they remain poorly understood. This paper considers published data of BV in Southern Ontario and data collected from the Laurentian Valley to develop a framework for BV in Southern Ontario. The investigative techniques necessary to advance understanding for BV exploration and improved understanding of valley fill heterogeneity are outlined. Understanding the spatial distribution and orientation of BV will permit improved exploration strategies for BV and high yield zones within the fills, and better assessment of valley-fill aquifer vulnerability.
