The Devonian of the Hudson Bay Basin

J. E. Thorpe

Abstract

The Hudson Bay Basin was formed by Late Silurian downwarp of a broad carbonate platform. This event also created a significant central ridge within the Basin. Basal Devonian sediments are continental; they are overlain by evaporites in an area which extends slightly beyond that covered by the waters of the present-day Bay.

This study shows that the stratigraphy of the Hudson Bay Basin is similar to the Moose River Basin, but that some modification of earlier work is required to explain the sediments found in the central portion of the Basin.
