AbstractIn contrast with the Mesozoic where substantial progress has been made in recent years in developing zonations within the Canadian Cordillera, there has been relatively little study of Paleozoic radiolarian fauna. As a result of previous and current Cordilleran mapping, Paleozoic conodont and radiolarian assemblages were found co-occurring at forty-five localities of chert and carbonate strata from southern British Columbia to northern Yukon, ranging in age from Ordovician to Permian. Conodont occurrences provide a mean for calibrating the radiolarian assemblages. This project focuses on developing this Paleozoic calibration in order to improve the geochronological tool available to mapping in the Canadian Cordillera, in particular in areas of active mining exploration like the Selwyn and Kechika basins.
