The Geology and Mineral Deposits of North-central Quesnellia
Tezzeron Lake to Discovery Creek, Central British ColumbiaMicroform - 1996
Details the geological investigations conducted for the Nation Lakes project, covering a study area in north central British Columbia extending from near Tezzeron Lake in the south to Discovery Creek, north of the Omineca River. The area lies within a Mesozoic island arc terrane with Late Palaeozoic arc and marginal basin basement, tectonically juxtaposed with the ancestral North American continental margin. The report introduction reviews the area's location, access, topography, glacial history, geological setting, exploration history, and previous studies. It then describes the area's stratified and intrusive rock units, igneous petrochemistry, structural geology and metamorphism, and economic geology (including the Mt. Milligan and other porphyry copper-gold deposits).
