.... The history of subduction, orogen uplift, and, finally, extension associated with this magmatic activity can be related to plate motion since the mid-Cretaceous. The 105–50 Ma period is related to terrane accretion and subduction. The northwest–southeast-trending Coast shear zone divides the resulting Coast...
