Abstract [en]

The valleys southwest of Storuman has been exploration targets for sulfide mineralizations

like the Laisvall Pb-Zn deposit since the late 1900 when several mineralized boulders where

found. No previous glaciogeological survey has been made. This report focus on the

directions of local paleoiceflows and glacial transportation in the area of Skikkisjön, the

location of the westernmost mineralized boulder, found in 2010. The aim of this study has

been to create a picture of the glaciogeological evolution of the area in order to determinate

possible hostrock areas. My results suggest that the geomorphology and transportation

occurred during a western icedivide located in the nearby mountainrange. The survey area is

characterized by topographically controlled iceflows witch appears to be linked between the

valleys. The iceflow velocity was considerably higher in the major valleys compared to the

surrounding areas indicated by the distribution of longtransported material.
