|Abstract||Cry Lake and Dease Lake map areas include six well defined terranes each characterized by distinctive lithological assemblages of different ages, structural styles, and contained mineral
Miogeoclinal strata of Ancestral North America range in age from Late Proterozoic to Early Mississippian. They have been intruded by voluminous Mesozoic and Cenozoic granitic rocks, in places associated with tungsten, lead, and zinc
The Slide Mountain Terrane contains Devonian to Permian rocks typical of oceanic and island arc environments. The Kootenay(?) Terrane is characterized by strongly tectonized, mainly weakly metamorphosed, siliceous strata. Ultrabasic
rocks have potential for jade occurrences and a few vein deposits of lead, zinc, gold, and silver have been explored.
Rocks assigned to Quesnellia are of Mesozoic island arc lithologies. In one locality, granodiorite is host to an important copper
deposit. Low grade nickel and chromite deposits are hosted by an Alaskan-type ultramafic body.
The Cache Creek Terrane is dominantly oceanic in lithology but includes some assemblages of island arc or rift affinity. The terrane ranges in age from
Devonian through Early Jurassic. Ultrabasic rocks host jade and asbestos deposits and are spatially related to numerous placer gold deposits. The island arc or rift volcanics host a large zinc and copper volcanogenic sulphide deposit.
Stikinia represent upper Paleozoic to Lower Jurassic island arc assemblages which are overlain by upper Mesozoic to Recent sedimentary and volcanic overlap assemblages. Copper, molybdenum, gold, lead, and zinc occurrences are found in the volcanic
and plutonic rocks. Coal occurs locally in overlap sedimentary rocks.
