Hughes Range Paleomagnetic Study: Paleomagnetic evidence for extreme block faulting east of the Rocky Mountain Trench near Kimberley, BC
by P.W. Ransom, T. Day and R.J. Enkin

Report Description
Low-angle normal faults just east of the Rocky Mountain Trench (northern Hughes range) have been suggested as originally steeply dipping and subsequently rotated through block faulting. This study uses new paleomagnetic measurements to suggest the area of block faulting along the Rocky Mountain Trench may be much wider than previously thought, and may have affected the Sullivan orebody. This project is part of Geoscience BC's SEEK program.
