Mapping Complex Folds in the Slocan Series, British Columbia

CIM Bulletin, 1951


The techniques used in recognizing, recording, and interpreting structures in the Slocan sedimentary series in the West Kootenay district of B.C. are presented here in the hope that they will be of use to others working in complexly folded areas. The general pattern of folding in the Central Slocan area is obscured by Jack of outcrop over a large part of the country, Jack of marker horizons, local complexities of folding, and several systems of faulting.
