The Canadian Cordillera has abundant minable deposits of Cu, Zn, Pb, and Mo. It has adequate Ni, W, Au, Ag, Hg, and Fe.

The Cordillera shows a pronounced regional zoning of metals in background abundances in rocks and an associated zoning in class of deposits and contained metals. These zonal changes occur sequentially, across the strike of the five subparallel tectonic belts.
