AbstractThe surficial geology represented in this map has been prepared at 1:50 000 scale and published at 1:100 000 scale. Surficial glacial deposits cover 100% of the map area. Till (units Tb, v, p, d, r, x) deposits cover 41% of the map area. Lacustrine (units Lp, b, x) deposits cover 24%, colluvial deposits (units Cx, z) cover 16%, alluvial and eolian deposits (units Ap, f, x) cover 4%, and glaciofluvial sediments (units Gp, d, f, x) cover 15% of the surficial deposits and includes prominent glaciofluvial terraces along the Mackenzie River. This map is underlain by Devonian limestone (Nahanni Formation) shale, mudstone, and siltstone (Fort Simpson, Trout River, and Redknife formations) and Cretaceous shale and siltstone; small bedrock exposures are visible along slopes incised by channels, and landslide headwalls too small to map.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Camsell Bend map area (95-J/SE) is located in a terrain along both sides of the Mackenzie River, Northwest Territories. It is part of the Southern Mackenzie Corridor. The present map is a surficial geology map published at 1:100 000 scale. The surficial material/sediments mostly represent glacial deposits associated with the Laurentide glaciation in northwest Canada. This map include catastrophic flood features such as gigantic sand ripples, irregular channels cut in bedrock as well as scoured bedrock surfaces.
