Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Taseko Lakes map-area of south-central British Columbia is a region of great geologic complexity. Rocks from many different geologic terranes are found here, and understanding their spatial relationships, as well as the forces that placed them in association with each other, is critical to interpreting the geological history of British Columbia and the development of its landscape and natural resources. This map provides an interpretation of the different rock types that are found in the Taseko Lakes region, and their different ages.
