AbstractCanadian Geoscience Map 122 depicts the surficial geology over some 790 km2 covered by the La Jolie Butte map sheet (NTS 94-O/12) in northeastern British Columbia. The map area lies at the western limit of the Liard Plateau and is incised by the Liard River and its tributaries. Bedrock is mantled by unconsolidated earth materials dating to the Late Pleistocene (Late Wisconsinan Glaciation, > 25 ka to ca. 10 ka) and non-glacial Holocene (ca. 10 ka to present). Deposits of till, green on the map, are generally suitable for placement of infrastructure. Glaciofluvial and eolian deposits with mineral, aggregate, and groundwater potential are coloured orange and buff. Slopes disturbed by landslides, debris flows, and rock falls appear brown and pink. Glaciolacustrine and organic deposits with sporadically discontinuous permafrost are coloured purple and grey. Alluvial deposits prone to flooding, erosion, and sedimentation appear yellow on the map.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
As natural resource development expands in northeastern British Columbia, up-to-date geological information will be needed to reduce the economic costs and environmental risks of developing new sources of energy and minerals. Canadian Geoscience Map 122 was produced as part of the Geo-Mapping for Energy and Minerals Yukon Basins Project to help meet this demand. The map, legend and accompanying notes incorporate past research with field observations and interpretation of satellite images to provide new insights into distribution, nature, origin and resource potential of earth surface materials and geological hazards on the La Jolie Butte map area (NTS 94O-012). CGM 122 is intended for use by governments, universities, resource companies, environmental consultants, First Nations communities, municipalities and the general public.
