The study presented here focuses on the aggregate potential of the Kimea Creek meltwater system, within NTS map area 94P, and adjacent areas. The objectives of this study are to: 1) describe the Quaternary history of the Kimea Creek meltwater channel system and adjacent areas; 2) discuss geologic settings within, and near to, this system that have potential to host granular material; and 3) present aggregate potential targets and deposit models for gravelbearing features occurring within the study area. The goal of this study is to provide to aggregate explorationists working in the area a document that compiles existing surficial geology and aggregate potential data on this system and to comment on where new aggregate occurrences may be found.
