Proterozoic mafic magmatic rocks exposed along the western side of North America, or western Laurentia, from Kimberley, British Columbia, through to northwestern Wyoming have been previously divided into two large igneous provinces: the ca. 1460 Ma Moyie-Purcell and the ca. 780 Ma Gunbarrel large igneous provinces. New geochemical analysis from this study demonstrates that there are additional intraplate mafic magmatic rocks present. Distinguishable by variable normalized rare earth element patterns combined with differing slopes on a binary Ti versus V plot, there are 17 identifiable geochemical signatures in the 307 whole-rock and trace-element analyses from this study. Only seven of...
