Geological map of the Cypress Hills, Saskatchewan
1885, by R.G. McConnell

One of the chief means by which the Geological Survey of Canada communicates the results of its field research is through maps, such as the one shown here of the Cypress Hills. All mineral discoveries in western Canada have been assisted in one form or another by such maps. They do not necessarily pinpoint sites for mining, but they do show the areas which have better potential than others and by doing so, reduce the mining industry's exploration costs.
