The range divides the Mississippi drainage basin from two sets of streams that flow into the Hudson Bay and St. Lawrence. The area has a cool continental climate with a dry winter averaging - 20°C and a summer averaging 24 °C with a wet autumn. The total precipitation is about 600 mm, largely as summer rainstorms, plus autumn rain and snow. The area was originally forested, mixed but predominantly coniferous, but much timber has been' felled during the course of mining. Several towns have grown up along the range which are served by an extensive network of railways built to carry away the ore, most of which converge on Duluth, a port on Lake Superior, 100 km to the south-east.

The eroded remnants of the Archean rocks are overlain by sediments of the Huronian Super-Group (also known as the Animikie by some authors). In general, the sequence is thicker and more easily subdivided in the east and south and tends to thin towards the north. Where complete, the Huronian begins with a group of dolomites and quartzites, and then passes up into the taconite-bearing group. The taconite is usually underlain by quartzites and overlain by argillaceous rocks in which further taconite may occur.

The discovery of potash in the area was largely due to oil drilling, and to the introduction of gamma-ray logging which detects the natural radioactivity of potassium. Geological Setting 30 Esterhazy is at the south-eastern edge of the Elk Point Basin, which occupies the land between the Canadian Shield and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and stretches from North Dakota in the United States to Northwest Territories. Sediments in this Basin were deposited at various ages, principally in the Devonian and Cretaceous.
