Golden sediments frame the shores of James Bay and surround Akimiski Island, the semi-circular shaped island near the coast. The sediments are more brown in color in the lower reaches of the bay and south of the island at the point where it is closest to the shoreline.

James Bay, a southeasterly extension of Hudson Bay, is 275 miles (443 km) long and 135 miles (217 km) wide. It borders the provinces of Quebec and Ontario. Islands within the bay, such as Akimiski Island, however, are part of Nunavut.
