AbstractThe 105 km long Kitimat-Morice River corridor features mostly interconnecting valleys linking the coastal community of Kitimat in northwestern British Columbia with the interior valley system of Morice River. The Iron Mountain to Kitimat River and McKay Creek confluence map area covers a distance of about 27 km north from Iron Mountain to Kitimat River and McKay Creek confluence in part of the Kitsumkalum-Kitimat trough and then along the north side of Kitimat River to just upstream of its confluence with Chist Creek. Mapping of surficial sediments, compilation of landslide deposits, and preliminary interpretation of bedrock types were primarily carried out using 1:20 000 British Columbia government aerial photographs dated from 2001 (west half of corridor in NTS 103-I) and 2013 (east half of corridor in NTS 93-L). Older, field-based mapping by the authors in some parts of the study area was incorporated into this mapping, complemented with additional reconnaissance-level field observation in 2016.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Kitimat-Morice River study area in northwest British Columbia is 110 km long and up to 7 km wide from Kitimat east to Morice River. Mapping of surficial sediments, compilation of landslide deposits, and preliminary interpretation of bedrock types up to height of land were primarily carried out using British Columbia airphotos dated from 2001, 2003, and 2007 ranging in scales from 1:15 000 to 1:25 000. Older, field-based mapping by the authors in some isolated parts of the study area was incorporated into this mapping.
