This dataset presents the bedrock geology of the south-western Mauricie. The study area covers the 17 municipalities of the Maskinongé MRC, Trois-Rivieres and Shawinigan cities and the Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel municipality. The bedrock in the south-west of Mauricie is composed of rocks from two distinct geologic provinces. The St. Lawrence Lowlands geologic province skirts the St. Lawrence River and is composed of sedimentary rocks deposited in a marine environment. The Grenville geologic province is located in the northern part of the study area and mainly includes igneous and metamorphic rocks.
This map was created to provide a regional frame of the simplified bedrock geology . This dataset is used to realize other themes.
