Comment Late Proterozoic to Cretaceous, mostly unmetamorphosed sedimentary rocks underlie most of the Sekwi Mountain (NTS 105P), Mount Eduni (NTS 106A), and northwestern Wrigley Lake (NTS 95M) map-areas. This work describes the stratigraphic succession as nine assemblages, each of which corresponds to a distinct depositional environment and/or tectonic regime. Late Cretaceous-Tertiary orogeny created an arcuate belt of NE-verging folds and thrust faults. Volcanic rocks are a minor component of the Late Proterozoic and Ordovician parts of the succession, and in mid-Cretaceous time, small subalkaline plutons intruded along the axis of the orogen. Numerous showings of a number of different deposit types are known. Hydrocarbon potential is probably low. The nine assemblages are:Early Neoproterozoic epicratonic basin; Middle Neoproterozoic volcanic succession; Middle to Late Neoproterozoic extension and rift-related successions; Lower to Middle Paleozoic Mackenzie Platform; Lower to Middle Paleozoic Selwyn Basin and Misty Creek Embayment; Middle Paleozoic siliciclastic basin; Upper Paleozoic siliciclastic/carbonate shelf; Late Permian chert basin, and Mesozoic foreland basin.
