Setting of Stratiform, Sediment-hosted Lead-zinc Deposits in Yukon and Northeastern British ColumbiaMicroform - 1996
Sediment-hosted stratiform lead-zinc deposits of Cambrian to Mississippian age occur in two of four dominantly clastic assemblages that for the outer part of the Upper Proterozoic and Palaeozoic Cordilleran miogeocline in Yukon and north-east British Columbia. This paper considers the Selwyn Basin and the Cassiar, Mackenzie, and MacDonald Platforms to be integral parts of the Cordilleran miogeocline. It briefly describes the stratigraphic and structural framework of the miogeocline in the northern Cordillera, and attempts to relate the sediment-hosted deposits to its evolution.
