Lode gold there was finally discovered in 1934, which precipitated the construction of the city of Yellowknife in 1935, the capital of the territory on the northern shores of Great Slave Lake.

Le grand lac des Esclaves est situé dans les Territoires du Nord-Ouest au Canada.

Par sa superficie de 28 568 km2, il est le deuxième plus grand lac des Territoires du Nord-Ouest, derrière le grand lac de l'Ours, et le neuvième du monde. C'est l'étendue d'eau la plus profonde d’Amérique du Nord, avec 614 m. Il tire son nom des Slavey, une des tribus des amérindiens au Canada.

Le marchand de fourrures britannique Samuel Hearne explora la région en 1771. Dans les années 1930, suite à la ruée vers l'or du Klondike, des voyageurs prospectent la région. Un filon aurifère y fut finalement découvert en 1934, ce qui précipita la construction de la ville de Yellowknife en 1935, la capitale du territoire, sur les rives nord du Grand lac des Esclaves.

Ce lac s'est formé suite à l'événement géologique du retrait des glaciers lors de la présente période interglaciaire l'Holocène ; celle-ci a débuté à la fin du Pléistocène il y a environ 11 400 ans sur les Territoires du Nord-Ouest faisant partie du Bouclier canadien.

Ainsi des formations de roche sédimentaire sont apparentes sur les rives de l'île Blanchet du grand lac des Esclaves avec strates visibles qui se sont déposées sous les mers anciennes;
les rives sud et est du Grand lac des Esclaves dévoilent un relief granitique.

It reminds me "L'appel de la forêt" (The book) and Gold Rush (The Movie)

I didn't know Terrage, Magic : is that the free version you used here ?
As saw on Wiki it had a professionnal use also. Super !
