West Swale Formation: The preglacial history of the Precambrian age and late Creataceous area resulted in a landscape with rich geologicial expression and diversity. The afforestation areas are situated within the Yorath Island Channel which cut across the Cory Plain parallel to the Moon Lake Channel. Glacial Rice Lake created from ice dams on the North Saskatchewan River broke its banks creating spillways through the channels to the South Saskatchewan River Valley, and Glacial Lake Saskatoon. The West Swale is an eroded till plain with the deposition from the Yorath Island Spillway. The West Swale Confluence with the South Saskatchewan River is at Maple Grove/Yorath Island.
