Introduction The explorations of several geologists have contributed to our knowledge of the Paleozoic rocks of the Hudson Bay region, among whom the names of Bell, Tyrrell, Mclnness, and Parks will always be associated in an important way with the geology of this region. These men have shown that Ordovician, Silurian, and Devonian strata are represented in the great sedimentary outlier lying west and south of Hudson and James bays. However, the succession and detailed sections of the formations had not been made out, and it had not been determined in all cases what horizons of these systems were present in the region, nor was it certain that all of the formations there present had been recognized.
From the standpoint of paleogeography and historical geology, it is highly desirable that the definite and complete sequence of the Paleozoic formations and their faunas in this region should be determined, as from these . . .
