    The Canadian Shield covers roughly half of Canada’s surface area and is composed of Precambrian igneous and metamorphic crystalline rocks. The lithologies comprise belts of stratified or banded. The geology of Quebec involves several different geologic provinces, made up of ancient Precambrian crystalline igneous and metamorphic rock, overlain by younger sedimentary rocks and soils. Most of southern Quebec is dominated by the Grenville Province, while the vast north is divided between the large Superior Province and the Churchill Province to the east, near Labrador.

    Asked in Geology, Canada, Landforms Most of the Canadian Shield is in Canada, but the shield extends into Minnesota and a little beyond, as well as into Greenland. Canadian is half covered. The geologic history Canada dates back over billion years. Cobalt is a small mining town in Ontario which is well-known for its large deposits of silver, and has a very interesting geologic history. The lowermost rocks in Cobalt belong to the Canadian Shield, as described above.

    Sudbury, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Iqaluit, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg. PS. Toronto is NOT in the Canadian Shield, it is part of the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence Lowlands region.   Geology is the study of planet Earth – the materials of which it is made, the processes that modify these materials, the resulting products, and the history of the planet and the life forms it has sustained since its formation c. billion years ago.
