May 31, 2007

Alright, no more foolin’ around…I think this one might be rather difficult.

    Since it isnt a coastline….it will take some time. I should probably wait until I am done with work.

    Slacker! How can you do geology while away from a computer?

    [From the KOA in Cortez, CO] It looks cratonal & glaciated(?) to me. Kind of like the Superior Province near Sudbury, Ont. or in the Algoma Province, but I just can’t find a spot where the structural grain & jointing are properly oriented. It’s also very curious that the rivers are white/light in color rather than blue. After a half hour (at least) without success I’m going to have to get back to field camp stuff. It’s a good one, Brian, so don’t make the hints too easy.

    Enjoy your field work!

    Like Ron, I checked out the Canadian craton, mostly looking just south of the Arctic coastline and around the Slave provence. I found some white rivers with blue lakes, but nothing that matched up.

    I also checked the Tibet plateau, but that looked pretty different, with lots of snowy mountains.

    I checked Canada for hours the other night too, and ended up gravitating to the Arctic (for the white river), but no luck either :@

    I too searched the Canadian arctic….then thought I should do some work. Now that I knoew we are on the right track, I will try again.

    Ron – KOA has wireless?!?!? What kind of camping is that!

    Yeah, KOA and plenty of other campgrounds have wifi, but not the national parks, in my experience.

    Gotcha! Found it, finally. Good one! Should I post lat/long… or are others still looking?

    go ahead and post the lat/long when you feel like it…i’d imagine once the others know someone else got it, they may give up.

    nice work…that was the most challenging yet

    if anyone knows anything about the geology in more detail, feel free to comment about it

    I looked at Baffin, but only at the western half.

    Some of it is shield, there are kimberlites and paleogene flood basalts on another part- the East, I think. There may be paleozoic mobile belts up north.

    That’s all I know.

    Is it the Amazon?
