    Kootenay National Park is a national park located in southeastern British Columbia, and is one component of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage park consists of 1, km 2 ( sq mi) of the Canadian Rockies, including parts of the Kootenay and Park mountain ranges, the Kootenay River and the entirety of the Vermilion the Vermillion River is completely Governing body: Parks Canada. The Mountain Geologist is a regionally oriented publication and generally focuses on the geology of the greater Rocky Mountain area of North America. Areas covered range from West Texas and New Mexico to northern British Columbia, as well as the Great Plains and Mid-Continent region.

    The Kootenays encompass portions of four major mountain ranges: the western Rockies, Purcells, Selkirks and eastern Monashees, and within these ranges are hundreds of lakes, rivers, glaciers foot peaks. About The Kootenay Rocky Mountains. The Kootenay Rocky Mountains is a diverse region of South-Eastern British Columbia. It stretches from Golden in the North to Cranbrook and Fernie in the South. In the Kootenay, you have dramatic mountain landscapes, glaciers, arid .

    Geological mapping covering 8, km2 of historic mining areas in British Columbia’s Kootenay Boundary Regional District was recently released by Geoscience BC at the AME Roundup conference. The new information is expected to bring new mineral exploration interest to the area. The geological materials that underlie the East Kootenay, as well as all of British Columbia, fall into three basic types (Figure 4). Rocks of the Earth’s crust underlie the entire East Kootenay and are commonly exposed in mountain peaks, rocky cliffs, river.
