MSc. students Roddy Campbell and Leigh van Drecht have published new fieldwork articles in Yukon Exploration & Geology 2016!
Campbell & Beranek (2017) summarizes the physical stratigraphy and tectonic significance of lower Paleozoic mafic volcanic successions in the Pelly Mountains, south-central Yukon. This work is part of our "Secular evolution and metallogeny of continental margin basins" research program in the Canadian Cordillera. This project is supported by the GEM (Geo-Mapping for Energy and Minerals) program at NRCan and Yukon Geological Survey.
van Drecht et al. (2017) outlines our new project on the Whitehorse trough, a Jurassic synorogenic basin that records the exhumation of Intermontane terranes in central Yukon. This work is part of our “Tectonics and paleogeography of ancient orogens” research program. This project is supported by the Yukon Geological Survey.
