AbstractNTS 87-G/02 is divided into fault-bounded domains by late north-trending (west-side down) and east-trending (north-side down) normal faults. Paleozoic sedimentary rocks of the Uvayualuk, Mount Phayre, Victoria Island, and Thumb Mountain formations are exposed along the coast to the west of the north-trending faults. Mostly Neoproterozoic sedimentary rocks of the upper Wynniatt and lower Kilian formations of the Shaler Supergroup (Minto Inlier) occur to the east of the north-trending faults. The northeast-trending, 4 km wide NE-trending Imaiqtaqtuq Fault Zone flanks the southeast coast of Minto Inlet, and records sinistral transtensional motions. Upper Wynniatt Formation limestones are injected by Type 1 and Type 2 Franklin sills near the coast, but only Type 2 sills are documented further south, where carbonate, shale, and evaporitic rocks of the Kilian Formation are well exposed beneath thick capping sills that form a series of south-dipping cuestas.
