AbstractA glacial dispersal-train map of North America has been compiled from published sources. It culls over 100 years of work by government, industry, and academia, and covers the Canadian Shield and glaciated parts of the Arctic Islands, the Cordilleran and Appalachian mountains, and Phanerozoic sedimentary basins south of the Shield. In total, 132 trains are portrayed, including those emanating from major mineral-deposit types (e.g., gold, base metal, kimberlite, etc). The map provides a significant new tool to help companies find ore deposits: the trains are a more accurate predictor of dispersal distance and direction than striations and streamlined landforms, the data typically depicted on surficial-geology maps, such as the Glacial Map of Canada. It also gives new insight into sedimentation patterns and processes beneath ice sheets, a sedimentary environment that, because of its inaccessibility, remains poorly understood and controversial.
