*** Event Full *** Geology of the Thunder Bay Region

Silver Harbour Conservation Area G25F+RX Shuniah, Ontario, Shuniah

Join Gene Kent as we tour the geological formation of the region traveling back in time from our youngest rock formations, and early forms of life through to the formation of Lake Superior and the great continental rift. We look for evidence of magma chambers, and how faulting and veining created the amethyst deposits in Shuniah. We will search for evidence of meteorite impact materials and how life changed on earth after the great impact. A very ancient Maar Volcano will help to tell the story of the formation of our continent.
