Age and setting of Permian Slide Mountain terrane ophiolitic ultramafic-mafic complexes in the Yukon: Implications for late Paleozoic-early Mesozoic tectonic models in the northern Canadian Cordillera

Abstract:

The Yukon Tanana (YTT) and Slide Mountain terranes (SMT) of the Cordillera in Canada and Alaska were interpreted in terms of opening and closing of a Late Devonian-Permian Japan Sea-style backarc basin behind a continental arc built upon YTT, which rifted from Laurentia during the Famennian-early Mississippian. Formation of Famennian transitional oceanic lithosphere supports rifting, but a combination of existing and new data on the setting and age of SMT ophiolites do not support the Japan S...
