Geological legend and base derived from:

Tipper, H.W., R.B. Campbell, G.C. Taylor and D.F. Stott (compilers) (1974): Parsnip River, Sheet 93; Geological Survey of Canada, Map 1424A, 1:1,000,000

Tipper, H.W. (1959): Quesnel; Geological Survey of Canada, Map 12-1959, 1:253,440 NTS 093B

See Quesnel (093A) 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.
