The southern Rae Province of the western Canadian Shield underwent extensive reworking during Paleoproterozoic time.Widespread granitic plutonism and poorly defined metamorphism resulting from the ca.This deformation is attributed to a broadly east-west stress regime imposed by accretion of the Nahanni-Fort Simpson Terrane to the west, combined with terminal collision in the Trans-Hudson Orogen to the east.
These depositional constraints support correlation of the Thluicho Lake Group with the lithologically similar Nonacho Group in the Northwest Territories, whereas petrological similarities and coeval emplacement ages indicate that the mafic dykes represent a southeastward extension of the Sparrow dykes.
Mafic volcanic rocks geochemically linked to the dykes are intercalated within the Martin Group, a continental redbed succession deposited in trans-tensional basin settings, indicating that deposition was ongoing at 1.82 Ga.
Here’s a photo of a summer storm approaching across the river.
That bridge in the background is I-75 about half an hour below Tampa and probably the reason we have so many snowbirds in residence.
The Thluicho Lake Group is a fining-upwards, conglomerate–arkose–argillite succession deposited in an intermontane setting towards the end of the Taltson Orogen.
Following deposition, the Thluicho Lake Group underwent two phases of regional folding and greenschist-facies metamorphism marking the latest Taltson and Snowbird overprints, respectively, prior to the emplacement of extensive 1.82 Ga mafic dykes.
I moved in during July 2011 soon after my neighbors had vanished.
The neighborhood was quite quiet and I had no idea what to expect following the first frost up North.
