  • Area 71 is built directly on top of bedrock which gives it maximum strength to withstand many natural and man made disasters.
  • The river bed is of schist bedrock which is covered by a thick mantle of of gold-bearing creek gravels.
  • The outlet of the lake at the north end of Lake Couchiching is controlled by precambrian bedrock which first makes its appearance about mid-way along this lake.
  • This was caused by cracks in the bedrock which allowed surface water to run down into the station, and was fixed by spraying a clogging chemical into the rocks.
  • There is an exhibition at the site with information and also guided tours via a tunnel down through the bedrock which takes the visitors as far as 500 meters below ground.

  • After this, it proceeds to flow directly over the bedrock which is entirely igneous, formed during the formation of the Keweenawan Rift.
  • Extensive erosion along this roadbed has resulted in a strip of exposed bedrock which has been subsequently dubbed the "scar road" and is easily visible from the air.
  • The west slopes have been eroded by glaciation and water down to the granite bedrock which has created a dramatic contrast between the volcanic and the granitic landscapes.
  • A more comprehensive ground investigation showed they started building on large boulders "boulders encountered in the site investigation were thought to be bedrock which was subsequently found to be as much as 40m lower".
  • Orientated almost due east, its entranceway consists of a set of stairs cut into the Valley's bedrock which lead to a gently sloping corridor and then to the tomb's single chamber.
  • They can form as a U or a V shaped trough as local bedrock variations reveal areas in the bedrock which are more prone to weathering than other locations on the slope.
  • The elevation of the Tract varies from 2 to 14 m above mean sea level and it has shallow bedrock which forms a firm substrate for supporting large structures.
