      Glacial drift includes till (unsorted material) and outwash (layers deposited by meltwater streams)". While some glacial drift has been discovered, this is said to be of "Pre-Illinoian age" about , years old. In Illinois, the Apple River and the Galena River › During the Quaternary, Illinois was glaciated by the south-central margin of the Laurentide Ice Sheet at least four times. The latest and penultimate glaciations are the Wisconsin and Illinois Episodes (Hansel and Johnson, ).The glaciations and interglacials prior to this and extending back to the onset of the Pleistocene in Illinois are collectively known as the pre-Illinois Episode (PIE). › topics › earth-and-planetary-sciences › laurentide-ice-sheet.

The outcroppings were part of a rock dome formed as coral reefs in an ancient sea.

The glacial deposits of Illinois consist primarily of (1) till—pebbly clay, silt, and sand, deposited directly from melting glaciers; (2) outwash—mostly sand and gravel, deposited by the rapidly flowing meltwater rivers; (3) lacustrine deposits—silt and clay that settled out in the clear, quiet water of glacial lakes and sand and gravel › outreach › geology-resources › glaciers-smooth-surface.

The area in Northwest Illinois called the Driftless area is also called the Land the Glaciers Forgot due to its high bluffs and land of rolling hills along the Mississippi River. In geological terms, square mile area is called that because of the absence of glacial drift.
