AbstractThe Deep Rose Lake south map area is a landscape dominated by till plains and subglacial glaciofluvial landforms associated with late phases of the last glaciation. Most deposits have been shaped or reworked by meltwater at the base of the glacier. The plains in the west half of the area are composed of sandy till derived from underlying Thelon Formation sandstone, while those in the east are stonier and are derived from granitic and gneissic rocks. Boulder lags are common. Streamlined till forms indicate ice flow to the northwest. Major sharp-crested esker systems are oriented north and northwest, and suggest ice recession was initially to the south, and then to the southeast. Esker corridors are flanked by areas of hummocky subglacial glaciofluvial deposits that grade laterally into ribbed moraine. Streamlining of glaciofluvial hummocky deposits near eskers suggests episodic grounding of the glacier base, governed by subglacial hydraulics. Sandy marine deposits with thermokarst ponds are present in the eastern part of the map area up to an elevation of 160 to 165 m.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Deep Rose south map (NTS 66-G south) in Nunavut identifies glacial and glaciofluvial surficial sediments and landforms deposited by the Laurentide Ice Sheet until about 7000 years ago. The surficial geology is based on the interpretation of aerial photos. This work was undertaken to provide new geological knowledge and improve our understanding of the distribution, nature and glacial history of surficial materials in the Rae Geological Province. The map will support informed decision making for resource development and land use.
