This dataset presents the bedrock geology of the south-central area of the Maritimes Carboniferous Basin. The study area extends from 65°30' à 63°30'. The bedrock is mainly composed of the following main units (from base to top): the Horton, Windsor, Riversdale-Mabou, Cumberland, Pictou and Prince Edward Island Groups. The internal stratigraphy of these units is complex and often laterally discontinuous.
This map was created to provide a regional frame of the simplified bedrock geology . This dataset is used to realize other themes.
