This synthesis describes the stratigraphy, depositional history, tectonic setting, and resource potential associated with the development of the Cambrian-Ordovician great American carbonate bank. There have been few detailed studies of the Sauk megasequence in these remote areas of Canada, and much information on platform and equivalent facies remains at a reconnaissance scale. Platform rocks occur as...
