Lisburne Group, Lithostratigraphy and Foraminiferal Zonation British Mountains, Northern Yukon Territory

B. L. Mamet, D. Mason


Carboniferous carbonates of the British Mountains, northern Yukon Territory, consist of thin-bedded micritic mudstones, wackestones, and packstones overlain by massive wackestones, packstones and grainstones. These rocks contain seven foraminiferal assemblages ranging from Late Visean (Meramec) to post Namurian (Atoka). Both the lithologies and the microfaunas indicate that these carbonates are the lateral equivalents of, and should be referred to, the Alapah and Wahoo Limestones, Lisburne Group, or northern Alaska.
