AbstractThe Ancient Pacific Margin NATMAP Project, developed in response to demand from the mineral industry, is a comprehensive analysis of the Cordillera-long belt of complexly deformed and metamorphosed rocks of pericratonic character known primarily as the Yukon-Tanana and Kootenay terranes.
During the project's first operational year, geological mapping began in the Wolf Lake-Jennings River area on the British Columbia-Yukon Territory border and continued in the Vernon area of southern British Columbia. Detailed metallogenic studies were undertaken in both the Kootenay and Yukon Tanana terranes. Bedrock and surficial geology reconnaissance studies in the Stewart River area provide the basis for future work.
The various components of the project will address the following: correlation between terranes; paleogeographic settings with emphasis on mineral-deposit modelling; timing and nature of tectonic events; terrane mobility relative to the North American craton; the nature of tectonic boundaries.
