Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This open file report presents a summary of 2014 reconnaissance work in the northwestern Cordillera (NW BC and SW Yukon) that was focused on establishing constraints on major crustal breaks within and between two major geological terranes. Field work was carried out in the Cassiar Mountains of northern BC, in the Finlayson Lake area of SE Yukon, in the Dawson area of western Yukon and the Aishihik Lake area of SW Yukon. Representative rock samples collected, and some samples were collected for specific analysis for geochemical signatures, and age dating that will help generate new tectonic models of the northern cordillera, and help guide mineral exploration for structurally hosted gold targets.
