Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
As part of the Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Program (GEM-Energy) Yukon Basins Project, the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) and British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Minerals (BCMEM) collaborated between 2009 and 2011 to produce a digital surficial geology and landform (geoscience) map and an accompanying geodatabase of field observations, terrain units, landforms and geomorphic processes in the Maxhamish Lake map area (NTS 94O), British Columbia. In this paper, we present the distribution of surficial deposits and landforms; and describe the sedimentology, surface morphology and facies associations of major terrain units and landforms. This terrain inventory is evaluated to: a) better define the regional potential for granular aggregate and frac sand resources in the map area; b) identify key geohazards that could impact surface infrastructure (e.g., road design, well pad locations, pipeline routing); c) provide baseline information useful for future land management decisions on resource development in northeastern British Columbia. By providing government agencies, industry, communities and the public access to reliable geoscience information on surficial earth materials, geohazards and granular resource potential and groundwater, the risks for new investment, exploration and development of natural resources in northern British Columbia will be reduced.
