Abstract

The Upper Triassic to Middle Jurassic Cadwallader terrane lies on the northeastern edge of the Coast Plutonic Complex in southwestern British Columbia. A detailed study of the upper part of the Cadwallader terrane (Tyaughton Group and overlying Last Creek formation) shows that it is a sedimentary sequence deposited on the fringe of the inactive Cadwallader magmatic arc. The stratigraphy of the upper part of the Cadwallader terrane records long-term thermal subsidence of the basin caused by cooling of the magmatic arc after volcanism ceased in the early Norian. The detailed stratigraphy of the upper Cadwallader terrane supports correlation of the Cadwallader with the Stikine terrane, along which it is currently structurally juxtaposed. -from Author
