      Physiography is the surface form of the Earth. The Vancouver region includes three main physiographic areas. Mountains (Coast and Cascade Mountains) comprise rugged bedrock ridges and peaks and intervening steep-walled valleys. The larger valleys contain thick deposits of sediments and host major rivers, lakes, or arms of the sea (e.g. Howe Sound). Mining Matters is a charitable organization dedicated to bringing knowledge and awareness about Canada's geology and mineral resources to students, educators and the public. The organization provides current information about rocks, minerals, metals, mining and the diverse career opportunities available in the minerals industry.

This guide book has been prepared for the geological field trip on Vancouver Island, preceding the Annual Meeting, Vancouverof the Geological Association of Canada. It consists of two parts. The first part, after a brief historical introduction, summarizes what is known about Vancouver Island geology.

The island was formed through a combination of processes, including tectonic plate movement, volcanism, erosion and glaciation.

Very readable, for a non-geologist. I would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in the geology of Vancouver Island and the surrounding area (e.g.
