Abstract

The stratigraphy and geological setting of the Proterozoic Windermere Supergroup (Figure 1) is discussed in detail in Arnott and Ross (chapter 22, this volume). The Isaac and Kaza Formations, part of the Windermere Supergroup (Figure 1), are interpreted by Arnott and Ross (op. cit.) to represent an immense slope to toe-of-slope, passive-margin, clastic fan system with sediment transported into deep water across an exposed carbonate shelf. Seven compensatory channel-levee complexes with interstratified slope and mass-transport complexes (MTCs), sheet sands (high amplitude reflection packages [HARPs]) and intervening condensed sections have been mapped in the Isaac Formation within the study area exposures at Castle Creek, British Columbia (Figure 2A). The outcrop panel presented here focuses on channel Complex 4 (CC4) as shown in Figure 2A.
