Cambrian lithostratigraphy of the Mount Clark, Mount Cap, and Saline River formations in the Carcajou Range and Norman Range, Northwest Territories (NTS 96E1, 3, and 4): M183-2/8246E-PDF

"This report documents the Lower to Middle Cambrian Mount Clark, Mount Cap, and Saline River formations in the Carcajou and Norman ranges, western mainland Northwest Territories. The ”Bearpaw Creek” section (section 1), exposes the sandstone-dominated uppermost Abraham Plains Formation (Katherine Group; ~2.4 m measured), unconformably overlain by a complete section of the Cambrian sandstone-dominated Mount Clark (~11.6 m measured), dolostone and dolomitic-sandstone-dominated Mount Cap (~23.2 m measured) and gypsite-dominated Saline River formations (~66.7 m measured), and lowermost carbonate-dominated Cambrian-Ordovician Franklin Mountain Formation. Dodo Creek sections A and B (section 2A and B), consist of incomplete, overlapping sections of the Mount Cap Formation (section A ~35.5 m measured; section B ~28.8 m measured). The Norman Range section (section 3) is an almost complete section of the Saline River Formation (~182.4 m measured), which is conformably overlain by the lowermost units of the Franklin Mountain Formation"--Abstract, p. 1.
