Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The report provides detailed documentation of measured stratigraphic sections through the Cambrian-aged Mount Clark and Mount Cap formations in the eastern Mackenzie Mountains, NWT. In some cases, underlying Neoproterozoic strata also are described. For each measured section, the report provides descriptive notes and thickness values, graphic presentations of the vertical successions of rock types, and photographs of outcrop exposures. The data will support an MSc project is currently being completed by the author. The goal of the report is to place these fundamental data in the public domain in a timely way.
