Geological map and legend from:

Muller, J.E. (compiler)(1981): Nootka Sound; Geological Survey of Canada, Map 1537A, 1:250,000

See NOOTKA SOUND (092E) Summary Sheet for an overview of the map area and additional regional references.

Positions of all geological contacts are approximate. In the case of an apparent disagreement between an occurrence’s geological location on the map and its stratigraphic setting given in the MINFILE documentation, the latter should be given priority.
