South Redstone Hot Springs

South Redstone Hot Springs is located around 1 kilometre south of the South Redstone River, in the Northwest Territories.  On the north-facing Hillside, there are two main source sites. In an area of roughly 600 square metres, the northern and bigger features several Springs and tufa deposits. The hottest spring generates a sequence of Terraces as it flows over a big steep-sided tufa Mound. Yellow and orange LG cover a shallow pool around 10 metres across. There is a minor odour to the water, and it has a low concentration of dissolved minerals. There are six more Springs in the vicinity of these Mounds.

The southern Springs are roughly half a kilometre south of the main system and have more tufa deposits than the main system. The southern system’s water is around 20 degrees Celsius cooler and has less water flow than the northern pools.
