Caledonian Earth Movements in The Vicinity of End Mountain and South Fork Previous HitGhostNext Hit River, Alberta, Canada

J. R. Patterson, T. P. Storey


At End Mountain, Alberta, spectacular angularity between accepted Cambrian strata and the Previous HitGhostNext Hit River Formation lends weight to the thesis that the Previous HitGhostNext Hit River is Devonian. It post-dates an orogenic and metamorphic event of variable intensity very dissimilar in type to that of the superimposed Laramide movement. Conclusions that Caledonian deformation affected the area are reinforced by a collection from the Previous HitGhostTop River of Devonian plants a few feet above the angular discordance and fish remains higher in the section.
