AbstractThis map encompasses two 1:50 000 scale map areas at the southw estern margin of Eagle Plain sedimentary basin, in the northern Canadian Cordillera. The eastern part is underlain by the Upper Cretaceous Park in, Fishing Branch, Burnthill Creek , and Cody Creek formations of the Eagle Plain Group, w here shale and sandstone beds dip gently eastw ard to northw ard. The w estern part of the map contains three large anticlinesyncline pairs trending north-northw est-south-southeast that expose Low er Cretaceous W hitestone R iver Formation lying unconformably on Paleoz oic strata of Middle Devonian to Permian age, comprising Ogilvie, Hart R iver, Ettrain, and J ungle Creek formations. The folds define domes and basins reflecting the influence of two orthogonal fold-thrust events during Cretaceous- Paleogene Cordilleran deformation. At the level of the Cretaceous units, the synclines define symmetrical continuous structures, w hereas the anticlines, exposing Paleoz oic strata, define asymmetric en échelon structures suggesting that pre-existing structural or stratigraphic trends influenced their deformation.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This map encompasses two 1:50,000 scale map areas at the southwestern margin of Eagle Plain sedimentary basin, in the northern Canadian Cordillera. It refines the delineation of folds, faults, and stratigraphic units. Eagle Plain is one of only two basins in Yukon where hydrocarbon exploration is permitted. This map will inform any future energy and mineral exploration activities in the region.
