The Cadillac fault is generally thought to be coincident with a highly schistose zone, a few tens of meters thick, composed of chlorite-carbonate and talc-chlorite-carbonate schists (Gunning and Ambrose, 1940; Norman, 1946). However, outcrops on the Orenada zone noo2 property indicate that deformation related to the Cadillac fault has affected different rock types over a width of more than 200 m. It is therefore more appropriate to refer to the Cadi11ac tectonic zone (CTZ) than to the Cadi11ac fau1t. This outcrop zone exposes a lithological succession that can be extended using outcrops and drill hole data for more than 10 km. This succession differs from the one presented on the available compilation maps and has important implications for the regional “stratigraphy”.
