Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
As part of the Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Program Yukon and Liard Basin Project, the Geological Survey of Canada, in collaboration with the British Columbia Ministry of Energy Mines and Petroleum Resources is working to provide an inventory of terrain, landforms and geomorphic processes in the Maxhamish Lake map area (NTS 94O), British Columbia. This paper provides a preliminary interpretation of surficial geology from air photos, satellite imagery, field observations and digital elevation models; and provides new insight into the range of subglacial processes, patterns of ice flow, deglacial history, and associated sedimentary environments associated with the Late Wisconsinan Laurentide Ice Sheet. Our work provides government agencies, industry and the public access to reliable geoscience information with respect to surficial earth materials, geomorphic processes and the resource potential for granular aggregate and frac sand. The intent of this work is to attract new investment and reduce risks for exploration and development of natural resources in northern British Columbia.
