Manitoba Province in s central Canada, the easternmost of the prairie provinces, bordered by Hudson Bay (ne) and the USA (s); the capital and largest city is Winnipeg. In , Charles II granted the land to the Hudson's Bay Company. In , the company sold it to the newly created Confederation of Canada. Manitoba became a province in "Geography of Manitoba" is the first comprehensive guide to all aspects of the human and physical geography of this unique province. Representing the work of 47 scholars, and illustrated with over maps, diagrams, and photographs, it is divided into four main sections, covering the major areas of the province's geography: Physical Background. Southern Manitoba is dominated by lakes, with Lake Winnipeg paralleled in the west by Winnipegosis and Manitoba. Most of the province's population is concentrated in the river valleys south of these lakes. To the west and north of the Red River valley, the land rises in an escarpment extending into the plateaus of the Pembina, Turtle, Riding. The accretion of the Wyoming, Hearne, and Superior Provinces to form the Archean core of western Laurentia occurred rapidly in the Paleoproterozoic. Missing from Hoffman’s () original rapid aggregation model was the Medicine Hat block (MHB). The MHB is a structurally distinct, complex block of Precambrian crystalline crust located between the Archean Wyoming Craton and the Archean.

Northern Superior geochronological programs in the Archean Northwestern Superior Province in Manitoba have provided insight into the nature of the geological components and timing of events that formed the northern flank of the Superior Province about million years ago.

Ancient detrital zircons from the western Rae and the northwestern Superior Provinces have similar Hf isotopic ratios (Fig. 6, Table 2). The majority of the – Ga zircon grains have negative ϵHf values between −2 and −10 when compared to the CHUR values of Blichert-Toft and Albarède ().

If the curve were to be constrained by results from other provinces (that is making the assumption that they may be treated together) a different path would result {e.g.

Nairn and Ressetar. The geography of Manitoba addresses the easternmost of the three prairie Canadian provinces, located in the longitudinal centre of Canada.

Manitoba borders on Saskatchewan to the west, Ontario to the east, Nunavut to the north, and the American states of North Dakota and Minnesota to the south.

Although the border with Saskatchewan appears straight on large-scale maps, it actually has many. Manitoba is one of Canada's 10 is the easternmost of the three Prairie provinces. Manitoba's capital and largest city (containing over half its population) is important cities and towns include Brandon, Thompson, Dauphin, Swan River, Churchill, The Pas, Selkirk, Portage la Prairie, Gimli, Flin Flon, Steinbach, Morden, Virden, Minnedosa, Emerson, Lockport, Neepawa.

The geologic province and thermo-tectonic age maps were compiled in to ensure a consistent method of providing values for these two parameters. The maps depict only features approximately km across and greater due to the fact that the resolution of the maps should be consistent with the resolution of the seismic refraction data.

The timing of Molson Igneous Events in the northwestern part of the Superior Boundary Zone has been investigated for over two decades because it has importance for understanding the tectonic evolution of this convergent margin during the ∼– Ga closure of the Manikewan Ocean (Symons and Harris, ).Furthermore, much of the Ni–Cu mineralization in the Superior Boundary.

The main conclusion from the new paleomagnetic data and age dating is that in the Karelia Province the E–W trending dyke swarm with an age of Ga shows its own characteristic SE pointing low inclination direction (component D′ from dyke AD13), and a more NW–SE trending Ga dyke swarm has its own SE pointing intermediate.

The Superior Craton is a stable crustal block covering Quebec, Ontario, and southeast Manitoba in Canada, and northern Minnesota in the United is the biggest craton among those formed during the Archean period.
