The southern Canoe River area (lat 52° N, long 118°W), situated adjacent to the northeast flank of the Shuswap complex of British Columbia, was mapped in detail in conjunction with mineralogic and petrologic studies. This work is the basis for a section some 50 km long which illustrates the transition from the Rocky Mountain fold and thrust belt on the east to the metamorphic core zone of the Columbian orogen on the west.
A 5-km-thick succession of Proterozoic and Cambrian clastic rocks have been metamorphosed from biotite to sillimanite grade. Three sets of major structures are superimposed in the core...
