Chapter 3: Geologic Structure and Landforms

3.2: Structures in the Precambrian Shield Northwest of Snow Lake

This area is located just west of that shown in figure 3.1. Two domes are located at 1 and 2, the latter being picked out by the shape of Gudy Lake 3. East/west trending rocks can be seen at 4, and faulting has produced the two linear features at 5 and 6. A very light-toned massive body of granite rock or pegmatite can be seen at 7, southwest of Styne Lake 8.[i] The light-toned line at 9 is the path of a power transmission line between Snow Lake and Sherridon, two northern mining communities.
