Landsat photograph of the northern part of Saskatchewan and part of the Northwest Territory, Canada. The image also shows part of Lake Athabasca (bottom of image in black) and Uranium City, on the northern shore of the lake, is located near the bottom left-hand corner. The Laurentian or Canadian Shield (pre-Cambrian) dotted with thousands of lakes can be seen, the rocks of this region are about 600 million years old. The greenish patches among the red of forest are areas of burnt woodland. This part of Canada is sparsely populated and forest fires are impossible to control.
