AbstractThe southwest Sans Sault Rapids map area (NTS 106-H/SW) lies at the junction between the northern Mackenzie Mountains, Mackenzie Plain, Franklin Mountains, and Peel Plateau of the Northwest Territories. Bedrock exposures in the area include carbonate and siliciclastic strata ranging from Neoproterozoic (Tonian) to Cretaceous age. These strata were deformed in Cretaceous to Eocene time by folding and contractional faulting associated with Cordilleran deformation. Major structures include the Tawu, Stony, and Imperial anticlines. A minor pre-Cordilleran set of approximately north-trending extensional faults are preserved within strata of the Neoproterozoic Mackenzie Mountains Supergroup, and are locally associated with mafic dykes of the Gunbarrel event (~780 Ma). Neoproterozoic strata are truncated beneath a major unconformity at the base of the Cambrian strata, and another major unconformity truncates Devonian strata beneath the Cretaceous units.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This publication is a bedrock geology map of the southwest quadrant of the Sans Sault Rapids map area (NTS 106H) in northern Mackenzie Mountains, Northwest Territories. It illustrates the distribution of sedimentary rocks of Neoproterozoic to Cretaceous age along with structural features such as folds and faults.
