AbstractThis 1:50 000-scale bedrock geological map of Mount Head (NTS 82-J/7) is the result of compilation and reinterpretation of pre-existing maps combined with new geological mapping conducted during the 2008 field season. The map spans the transition from the Southern Rocky Mountain Foothills to the Front Ranges and straddles the Great Divide. The bedrock geology is characterized by Late Devonian to Late Cretaceous sedimentary strata that were deformed by a series of probable Late Cretaceous to Early Tertiary thin-skinned thrust faults and associated folds. The three major thrusts, the McConnell-Sentinel Peak, Lewis, and Bourgeau (from east to west), dominate the structural geology. Mapped structures include folded thrusts, duplexes, thrust-overridden folds, and prominent plunge magnitudes related to probable subsurface lateral thrust ramps. Coupled with regional map relationships, these features indicate out-of-sequence thrust development and substantial kinematic interaction between thrust sheets carried on long-lived thrusts.
