Hall Peninsula

The Hall Peninsula is located in the south of Baffin Island, between the Cumberland Peninsula to the east and Frobisher Bay to the west (Scott, 1997).

"The geology of the Hall Peninsula corridor can be divided into three principal litho-logical domains. An eastern domain of Archean tonalitic gneisses, monzogranite and minor metasedimentary rocks, a central domain of Paleoproterozoic siliciclastic metasedimentary rocks and subordinate Paleo proterozoic metaplutonic rocks, and a western domain dominated by orthopyroxene- and garnet bearing monzogranites of the Paleoproterozoic Cumberland batholith." (Scott, 1997 : 6)

Grinnell Ice Cap is located on the Hall Peninsula which discharges into Frobisher Bay (Baird, 1955).
