Borden Peninsula extends north for 225 km (140 mi). It is 64 km (40 mi) - 169 km (105 mi) wide.
The northern area, including the Hartz Mountains, are composed of flat, dissected rock rising to over 914 m (2,999 ft) above sea level. The Magda Plateau is to the south where river valleys occupy the land, dividing scarps and flat-topped hills. Admiralty Inlet forms a western border, while Navy Board Inlet forms a border to the east, separating the peninsula from Bylot Island. Navy Board Inlet's coastal cliffs rise to 457 m (1,499 ft). 
The peninsula has seen mining activity for decades, especially for diamonds.
