The Ogden Peak study area is located 10 km  east of and structurally below this suture zone and is thus well situated for observing deformational styles within the autochthonous package. Rocks Snowshoe  exposed  Group  and  near  Ogden  Peak  local  diabasic  comprise  intrusions.  the  These  Hadrynian(?) rocks  record  to Paleozoic(?) a  deformational  history involving four phases of folding ( D - D ) and later brittle faulting (D ). Earliest x  recognizable transposed  structures  consist  of  recumbant  4  5  isoclinal  folds  with  a  well-developed  foliation. This foliation is tightly folded about northwest trending, southwest  verging second phase structures. Northwest trending third phase structures and northeast trending fourth phase structures occur as both crenulations and open buckles. Southeast dipping faults cut all earlier structures with tens of meters of normal offset Phase 1 and Phase 2 fold styles are compatible with a flattened mechanism contrasts  of formation, associated  across layering. Later fold  with  elevated  temperatures and  buckle fold  reduced viscosity  styles are controlled by higher viscosity contrasts  and detachment along layering. All  phases  of  deformation  are  dominated  by  semi-brittle  mechanisms  of  dislocation slip and glide, mechanical twinning, and microcracking.

INTRODUCTION  The Canadian Cordillera is composed of five major tectonic belts (Figure 1), and  numerous  study  discrete  in central  Omineca  Belt  tectono-stratigraphic  British  Columbia,  (OMB) and  the  near  terranes. In the Quesnel  Intermontane  Belt  Lake,  area  the  of interest  boundary  (1MB) represents  to this  between  the  contact  the of  autochthonous rocks of North America with allochthonous rocks of numerous displaced terranes  accreted  from  the  west  The  Omineca  Belt  here  (Barkerville Terrane)  is  dominated by siliciclastic and carbonate rocks of the late Proterozoic(?) to Paleozoic(?) Snowshoe Group (Campbell and Campbell, 1970). Allochthonous Intermontane  Belt rocks  include  has. been  the  late  Paleozoic(?) Crooked Amphibolite (Struik,  1986),  which  tentatively correlated with the Slide Mountain Terrane, and structurally overlying Triassic and  Jurassic  sedimentary  and  volcanic  rocks  assigned  to  the  Quesnellia  Terrane.  Extensive deformation and metamorphism of Jurassic age in both packages of rocks are believed to be related to the accretion of Quesnellia and more westerly terranes onto North  America  (Monger et  al., 1982). The  suture zone  between  the  characterized by an extensive mylonite zone that appears to be the  two belts is result of high  angle convergence (Ross et al., 1985). Figure 2 is a generalized geologic map showing the spatial distribution of lithologic units in the Quesnel Lake region.  1  INTRODUCTION / 2  Figure 1.

LOCATION The Ogden Peak study area is located between the East Arm and North Arm  of  Quesnel  Lake, on the  western  flank of the  British Columbia (Figure 2). An area of 50 km the summer of 1985 at elevations between completely within the  2  Cariboo Mountains in  south-central  was mapped at 1:16,000 scale during  1,500 m and 2,500 m. The study area is  Omineca Belt, approximately  10 km east of the  Intermontane  Belt/Omineca Belt boundary. It is easily accessible by helicopter; lower elevations may be reached by boat from Quesnel Lake. Interconnected ridges allow easy travel through the area above timberline.  1.2. PREVIOUS WORK Western  Omineca Belt rocks in the  Quesnel Lake region were  first  mapped  north of the study area in the vicinity of Barkerville and Keithly Creek (Uglow, 1922; Lang, 1938; Holland, 1954; Sutherland Brown, 1957). Holland (1954) was first to assign these rocks to the Late Precambrian to Cambrian Snowshoe Formation of the Cariboo Group, with a type locality near Yanks Peak. Sutherland Brown (1957) described a 300 m thick section of Snowshoe Formation as forming the uppermost unit of the Cariboo Group, unconformably overlain by the Late Paleozoic Slide Mountain Group. Sutherland Brown outlined a structural history involving at least two phases of folding followed by brittle deformation.

Ross et al. (1985) have related the distribution and geometry of some of these structures to the Jurassic accretion of Quesnellia onto North America.  1.3.  PURPOSE  The present students over  the  study  is one  last decade,  of a  with  the  series  of projects  involving  U B C graduate  overall objective of elucidating the  tectonic  processes related to convergence at the Intermontane Belt/Omineca Belt boundary. The Ogden Peak area is situated structurally well below the boundary, and thus spatially removed  from  the  zone  of  high  strain  concentrated  there.  This  location allows  observation of pre-accretion structures which have been only moderately overprinted by later deformation related to convergence. Overall objectives of this study are to provide a detailed structural and stratigraphic analysis of the Ogden Peak area in order to: 1. ) correlate Snowshoe Group stratigraphy with that described across the North Arm of Quesnel Lake by Getsinger (1985) and that described across the East Arm of Quesnel Lake by Montgomery (1985), and to 2. )  relate  the  structural  tectonic history, specifically North America.  and  metamorphic  those  events  developement  involving  the  of the  area  to  the  local  obduction of Quesnellia onto  2.  2.1.  STRATIGRAPHY  INTRODUCTION Rocks exposed  in the  Ogden Peak area consist of metamorphosed  siliciclastic  and carbonate rocks locally intruded by mafic dykes. Metasedimentary rocks in the area were first mapped by Campbell (1963) as part of the Hadrynian Snowshoe Formation, a  western  fades  of  the  Kaza  Group.  Regional  mapping  by  Struik  (1981,  1982)  culminated in the publication of a 1:50,000 scale geologic map of the Quesnel Lake region  in  which  he  demonstrated  that  the  Snowshoe  Formation  does  not  readily  correlate with strata described elsewhere as part of the Cariboo Group (Holland, 1954; Sutherland Brown, 1957). This has led to the elevation of the Snowshoe Formation to Group status (Struik, 1984). Struik separates it from the  more  easterly  Kaza  group  along the Pleasant Valley Fault (Struik, 1984; 1986a). The Snowshoe Group is included (by Struik) in the Barkerville Terrane, a subdivision of the Selkirk Terrane. Within the Selkirk Terrane, it is considered laterally equivalent to the Horsethief Creek Group as mapped by Pell (1984) east of Wells Gray Park (Struik, 1986b). Nine distinct lithologic units were mapped within the Snowshoe Group in the Ogden Peak area. Figure 3 shows the distribution of the major units across the area.

S N O W S H O E G R O U P ROCKS  A total present thickness of approximately 3,000 m of Snowshoe Group rocks is exposed  in the  Ogden Peak  pelitic and quartzose  area.  The  stratigraphy  schists, micaceous quartzites,  is characterized  by interlayered  amphibole schists, and marbles. A  generalized stratigraphic column of these lithologies is illustrated in figure 4. Unit 1 minimum thickness 1,500 m This series of interlayered pelitic to quartzose schists and feldspathic  quartzites  are the structurally lowest rocks of the study area. The unit can be divided into three parts, la, lb, and l c on the basis of lithological variation. The base of unit 1 is not observed in the mapped area. Subunit la minimum thickness 1,000 m Subunit l a consists of equal proportions of micaceous feldspathic quartzite and pelitic schists  alternating  in layers ranging  in thickness  quartzite layers crop out as prominent ledges  between  from  5 m to  areas of recessive  10 m. The topography  underlain by schist The grey weathering quartzite has well developed stratification 2 cm to 15 cm thick and a parallel foliation planar  alignment  of micaceous  minerals. Thin  defined  by elongate  discontinuous  marble  quartz  grains and  lenses crop  out  within the quartzite layers in the western map area, but are absent to the east Up to 20% mica and  feldspar  minerals may be  contained in the  quartzite.

Schist intervals have a distinctive platy appearance with yellow weathering. Thin quartzite  beds (0.3 cm to 0.5 cm) locally  constitute  up to 25% of the  succession.  Mineralogy is dominated by medium to coarse grained muscovite and biotite in roughly equal  proportions,  with  quartz,  feldspar,  and  metamorphic  garnet  making  up  the  remaining rock volume. Both  lithologic types  contain  abundant  quartz  veins crosscutting compositional  layering. The upper contact of this subunit is sharp and is defined by the appearance of abundant marble and amphibole schist layers indicative of subunit l b . Subunit l b variable thickness 50 m to 150 m Immediately overlying the interlayered schists and quartzites of subunit l a is a sequence of mixed lithologies including impure marble, micaceous quartzite, amphibole schist, and micaceous schist This poorly exposed sequence is usually recognizable by yellow  weathering  of the  marble  component  The base is sometimes  marked  by a  friable weakly foliated feldspathic quartzite up to 10 m thick. Overlying this is a platy to massive, tan weathering impure marble up to 50 m thick. Micaceous partings and occasional  quartz  or  amphibole  rich  horizons  define  compositional layering  medium grained carbonate. The marble marks the top of subunit l b in the part of the  study area,  while to the  east, additional interbedded  in  this  western  amphibole schists,  garnet bearing pelites, and marbles continues for up to 100 m. Amphibole schist layers here range in character  from fine grained hornblende-feldspar  gneissic schists to very  coarse grained strongly foliated schists composed exclusively of hornblende. The marble in this sequence is similar to the marble lower in subunit lb. The upper contact of  STRATIGRAPHY / 11 subunit lb is gradational and marked by the gradual disappearance of carbonate and amphibole schist layers. Subunit l c thickness 400 m The  uppermost  division of unit 1 is a thick interval of micaceous quartzite  with up to 30% pelitic schists. Alternation between  these lithologies occurs over as  little as 4 cm to 5 cm in the eastern part of the study area, increasing to 5 m in the west Medium grained schist is dark green and silver on fresh surfaces, weathering to a dark grey. It is more resistant steep slopes  and  cliffs.  Highly  than the schists lower in the section, forming  garnetiferous  intervals are  common, and  chlorite is  locally abundant Grey weathering quartzite has well developed stratification 2 cm to 8 cm thick. Thin mica partings define a foliation and commonly contain large euhedral garnets. Unit 2 variable thickness 50 m to 200 m The  top  of  subunit  lc  grades  abruptly  into  a  slope  forming  amphibole  schist/gneiss sequence. Theoe schists weather typically to dark brown, but local areas of high  carbonate  concentrations  weather  yellow.  Mineralogy  consists  hornblende, plagioclase, and carbonate, although the relative abundance  primarily  of  and grain size  of these components is highly variable. Plagioclase/hornblende ratios are highest in fine grained  rocks, and  grained rocks are  color banded homogeneous,  differentiated  layering is slightly  developed. Coarse  schistose, and composed of 90% to  100% euhedral  hornblende. Marble  lenses  up  to  2.0  m  thick occur at  all levels within  unit  2, and  carbonate content increases markedly in the western study area. With these lenses, 0.1  STRATIGRAPHY / 12 cm  to  1.0 cm thick amphibole/mica selvages  alternate with  much thicker  carbonate  layers. Quartz veins common to unit 1 are absent in the amphibole schist The upper contact with unit 3 is marked by the disappearence of amphibole schist and a return to pelitic lithologies. Unit 3 variable thickness 50 m to 300 m Above the amphibole schist is a resistant pelitic to quartzose schist of variable thickness.  The  bottom  3  m  is  a  very  fine  grained  fissile  schist  lacking  visible  metamorphic porphyroblasts. The remainder of the section consists of grey weathering, medium to coarse grained schist with porphyroblasts of garnet and.staurolite. Locally, up to 20% of this unit may be quartzite layers, and occasional discontinuous marble and amphibole rich horizons are intercalated within the schists in the western part of the study area. Unit 3 may contain up to 10% by volume of thin quartz veins cutting across foliation  at moderate  to high angles. A sharp transition to continuous marble  marks the upper contact with unit 4 (Figure 5). Unit 4 variable thickness 50 m to 300 m In marked contrast to underlying lithologies unit 4 consists primarily of marble, making it an amounts  important marker horizon for regional stratigraphic correlations. Lesser  of pelitic  schist,  quartzite,  and  amphibole  schist  form  discontinuous  lenses  within unit 4 in all parts of the study area. Schist and quartzite layers average 1 m to 2 m in thickness, and occur at all stratigraphic levels within the non-carbonates  marble. These  constitute up to 30% of the overall unit Relative abundances of rock  types follow no consistent pattern across the area. Characteristic yellow weathering of the carbonate  component facilitates easy identification of unit 4, although local areas  STRATIGRAPHY / 13  Figure 5.  Stratigraphic contact between units 3 and 4 north of peak 7570. Thin marble layer of unit 4 is interbedded with quartzite and schist of unit 3.  STRATIGRAPHY / 14 may  weather to dark brown or black. Lensoid, weakly foliated amphibolite boudins up  to 5 m long and with very sharp contacts to the surrounding rock are common to the  lower  part  of  unit  4  in  the  central  study  area.  Compositional layering in  surrounding rocks is parallel to boudin contacts. In hand sample, the marble is coarse grained and ranges in composition from pure  calcite  to  quartzose  marble  with  discrete  layers  of  mica  or  amphibole.  Compositionally distinct layers accompany a parallel penetrative  fissility. Unit 4 schists  have  to  an  unusually high proportion of calcite, and  weather  darker  yellow  than  similar rocks elsewhere in the area. The  upper  contact,  characterized  by  interfingering of marble with  siliciclastic  lithologies of unit 5, is mapped where rocks contain less than 10% marble. Unit 5 minimum thickness 1,400 m Forming  the  structurally highest rocks of the Ogden Peak succession is this  series of alternating schists and quartzites. Unit 5 is divided into three subunits on the basis of relative abundances of constituent lithologies. Subunit 5a variable thickness 0 m to 100 m Overlying the marble of unit 4 in most of the Ogden Peak area is a section of  mixed  section  is  pelitic  schists,  thickest  just  quartzites,  marble,  and  south  Ogden  Peak,  of  amphibole and  schists  thins  (Figure 6). This  rapidly  to  the  east,  disappearing completely over 2 km. Field evidence demonstrating either a structural or a  stratigraphic origin for this thinning is inconclusive. Quartzite and pelitic schist in  roughly  equal  abundances  are  the  dominant  lithologies in  subunit  5a,  with  lesser  amounts of amphibole schist and marble. These lithologic types alternate in layers 1 m  STRATIGRAPHY / IS  Figure 6.  Lithologic variation in base of unit 5a at location 591a.

This correlation necessitates a fault between the two areas downdropping the north side, the existence of which is corroborated by offset  in metamorphic zones (Campbell, 1970).  Stratigraphy south of Quesnel Lake described by Montgomery (1985) is similar to the lowest segment of the Ogden Peak succession. Rocks in the Niagara Peak region to the east lie structurally above those in the study area (Garwin, 1987). Ages of Snowshoe Group rocks are  poorly constrained. Microfossil  fragments  from the upper Snowshoe Group laterally equivalent to the Downey Succession have been identified as Early Paleozoic fauna (Struik, 1986). Upper age limits of Snowshoe Group rocks are approximately 340 Ma, provided by the emplacement of the Quesnel Lake Gneiss (Mortensen et al., 1987), and Early Permian, based on conodonts collected  STRATIGRAPHY / 23 from the upper Snowshoe Group (Orchard and Struik, 1985). The  quartzites,  marbles,  and  schists  of  the  Ogden  Peak  succession  are  interpreted to be metamorphic products of a series of clastic sediments, carbonates, and volcanic tuffs. Struik (1986) suggests a basalt flow protolith for some of the amphibole schists in the Downey Succession, however, the high carbonate content and preservation of relic bedding in the amphibolte schist of the study area are more indicative of a volcanic  sediment  or  dolomitic siltstone  protolith. This  sequence  of  lithologies is  consistent with the continental shelf depositional setting proposed for rocks in this area.  3. MAJOR AND  3.1.  TRACE ELEMENT  GEOCHEMISTRY  INTRODUCTION Geochemical analyses were completed for a group of intrusive rocks from the  Ogden  Peak area.  Samples were collected from  six meta-diabase  dykes  representing  both eastern and western sets at various distances from intrusive contacts. The study was conducted using the U B C Department of Geology X-ray fluorescence  spectrometer  with  results  pressed  powder  pellets  samples.  Analysis  procedures  and  test  are  summarized in Appendix 1, and sample locations are shown on Plate I. The chemical compositions of these rocks are used to characterize the igneous suites they  are  associated with.  Specifically,  the  trace  element  concentrations  of  the  dykes are used to infer their original tectonic environments using discriminant diagrams proposed by Pearce and Cahn (1973). A similar approach has been taken for previous workers in the Quesnel Lake region for the Quesnel Lake Gneiss and M L Perseus Gneiss (Montgomery, 1985) and the Takla Volcanics of Quesnellia Terrane (Bloodgood, 1987). Samples from Ogden Peak were analyzed in the present study in order to: 1.  characterize  dyke  rock  composition, and  determine  the  amount  of variation  between intrusive bodies, 2.  relate trace element abundances in dykes to tectonic setting, based on published discriminant diagrams, and  3.  compare the chemistry of these dykes to that of the Quesnel Lake Gneiss, the Boss  Mountain  relations  between  Gneiss,  and  the  the  intrusive  Takla  bodies  24  Volcanics are  to  the  south.  established  on  the  Petrogenetic  basis  of  this  MAJOR AND TRACE ELEMENT GEOCHEMISTRY / 25 comparison.  M A J O R A N D T R A C E E L E M E N T GEOCHEMISTRY / 26 3.2.

Binary and  ternary discriminant diagrams showing this variation are constructed using trace element analyses of unaltered demonstrated  rocks from  known  tectonic settings.  As Ti, Zr, and  Y  have  low mobility at moderate metamorphic grades (Pearce and Cann, 1973;  Murphy and Hynes, 1986), diagrams using these elemtents as discriminators are used in classifying the altered diabase dykes. A ternary plot of Ti, Zr, and Y proposed by Pearce and Cann (1973) is used to differentiate  between arc related low-potassium tholeiites and calc-alkaline basalts,  within plate basalts, and ocean floor basalts (Figure 11).

Compositional fields on discriminant diagrams are empirical and are limited by available data from previous studies.  3.  Composition fields are  constructed  from  analyses of basic volcanic rocks, and  applications to intrusive dykes have not been demonstrated. 4.  Petrographic evidence confirming any interpretation is lacking due to overprinting of original mineralogical characteristics during amphibolite grade metamorphism.

Indicator minerals are staurolite, garnet, and biotite, in the  absence of kyanite.

Most  commonly  it  is  found  in  quartz-kyanite knots as 4 cm to 8 cm long randomly oriented blades. These knots are limited to pelitic schists, and minerals within them may be kinked by D  4  crenulations.  Kyanite also forms small porphyroblasts in muscovite schists.

The transition to the staurolite +  kyanite zone is somewhat more problematic.

Alternatively, biotite, garnet, staurolite, and kyanite may all be stable phases of a seven or more component system as suggested by appreciable amounts of calcium and manganese in garnet (see appendix 4). The above generalized reactions should be considered speculative and lack firm supportive textural evidence.  M E T A M O R P H I S M / 101 5.2.2. Amphibole schist lithologies Hb-Bt-Qz-Ch-Pl-Mu +  Cc, II, Sid  Amphibole schists form all of unit 2, and occur occasionally as layers within other stratigraphic units. They are comprised of of 80% to 100% hornblende, except westernmost  exposures  of  unit  2  which  have  35%  to  40%  carbonate  minerals.  Hornblende forms large subidiomorphic grains which are mostly elongate in the S /S! 0  plane. It shows faint to moderate green pleochroism, and larger crystals are extremely poikilitic. Ilmenite and quartz inclusions in hornblende define an internal foliation (S.) which in elongate grains is subparallel to the external foliation. In equant grains S^. may  be slightly discordant to the dominant foliation. Pre- to syn- phase 2 growth is  indicated by porphyroblasts kinked about D  2  crenulations.  Biotite comprises up to 10% of the volume of amphibole schists. It occurs both as an alteration product of hornblende and as earlier prograde biotite growth. Earliest biotite may be completely enclosed by later hornblende porphyroblasts. Radiating fibrous chlorite is common both as alterations of biotite and hornblende and isolated knots within the quartz/feldspar matrix. Accessory minerals include clinozoisite, sphene, and rutile. Clinozoisite occurs as idiomorphic  fine grains within chlorite aggregates or as inclusions within  porphyroblasts.

RETROGRADE METAMORPHISM  Rocks  of the  Ogden Peak  M  2  aiea have  been  subject  to a regional  retrograde  metamorphism evidenced by the replacement of prograde mineral assemblages by lower grade hydrous phases. Biotite  is replaced  by mimetic growth of chlorite and small  amounts of quartz. Original grain boundaries and intragranular kink bands are preserved throughout  chlorite growth. Garnet porphyroblasts are primarily replaced by unoriented  fibrous chlorite along rims with lesser sericite, quartz, and ilmenite concentrated  near  cores. Sericite pseudomorphs of staurolite have small amounts of chlorite and ilmenite restricted  to  core  zones  of pre-existing  porphyroblasts.  Kyanite is  replaced  by  a  randomly oriented matrix of sericite with rare larger muscovite grains. The completeness of retrogression is determined microscopic retrogression,  and  macroscopic  scales.  Porphyroblasts  commonly with complete  replacement  by local composition on both  in  pelitic  schist  show  of kyanite, staurolite,  greatest  and garnet  Retrogression is less complete in structurally lower pelitic rocks (unit la), and increases higher  in  the  succession.

Ethoridge et al. (1983) propose that a fluid cap at shallow structural levels is generated as a natural consequence of regional prograde metamorphism. The cap would develop at the boundary between  hot rising metamorphic fluids and cooler meteoric  water, as mineral phases precipitated from the cooling metamorphic fluid into existing pore spaces, thereby reducing permeability.  METAMORPHISM / 114  Phase 1 syn  Phase 2  post  syn  post  Phase 4 pre  syn  post  Chlorite Muscovite Biotite Garnet Staurolite Kyanite  Retrograde  Prograde  constrained inferred  Figure 54.

Previous studies  in the  Quesnel Lake area  have  concentrated  on areas  either adjacent to and straddling the suture zone (Montgomery, 1978; Fillipone, 1985; Elsby, 1986; Bloodgood, 1987; Carye, 1985) or closer to the central Omineca Belt in high 1980;  grade Engi,  rocks of the 1984;  Shuswap  Getsinger,  Metamorphic Complex (Fletcher,  1985).

The current geologic studies of the Ogden Peak area allow correlation of structural styles and stratigraphy described along the suture zone with that to the northeast, as well as add detail to existing regional work. Additionally, metamorphic studies of the Ogden Peak area help constrain regional metamorphic styles. In this section, the stratigraphic succession and the progression of deformational and metamorphic styles eastward from the margin are described with specific references to the Ogden Peak area. A discussion of possible relations to the framework of the Intermontane and Omineca tectonic belts follows.  115  tectonostratigraphic  R E G I O N A L CORRELATIONS A N D TECTONIC INTERPRETATIONS / 116 6.1.1.

Structure Earliest recognizable structures  in all Snowshoe Group rocks of the  Quesnel  Lake region are mesoscopic isoclinal folds outlined by compositional layering. They are commonly rootless, and together with a strong axial planar foliation define a regional transposed foliation which outlines all later structures. Map scale features related to this deformation are not as yet documented in the Ogden Peak and surrounding areas.

Absolute  ages  of  deformational  events  are  roughly  constrained  by  several  plutonic bodies in the Quesnel Lake region. The Boss Mountain Gneiss and Quesnel Lake Gneiss, deformed by all phases described above, yield zircon U - P b dates of 338 Ma to 375 M a (Mortensen et al., 1987). This is consistent with a zircon U - P b age of 335 M a to 450 M a on a  pre-Fi  dioritic gneiss in the Three Ladies Mountain area  (Getsinger, 1985). Phase 2 folds are believed to have formed during the accretion of allochthonous terranes of the Intermontane Belt onto North America (Ross et al., 1985). Stratigraphic evidence elsewhere indicates a Jurassic age for this event (Monger, 1982). Timing of convergence is constrained in the Kootenay Arc region, some 150 km south of Quesnel Lake, by syn- to post-  kinematic granitic plutons of 177 M a to 155 M a  which intrude both continental rocks and rocks of Quesnellia (Archibald et al., 1983). Third phase deformation follows obduction, but precedes emplacement  of the Hobson  Pluton which was dated using Rb-Sr whole rock analyses at 138 +  12 Ma and 163  ±  7 M a (Pigage,  1977). In  addition, the  Rb-Sr whole rock analysis at 104.3 ±  undeformed  Raft  Batholith, dated  using  33 Ma, cuts the suture between Omineca Belt  and Intermontane Belt rocks (Jung, 1986), although recent K - A r dates on this intrusion indicate a Jurassic age (R. L. Armstrong, oral comm., 1987). These constraints place the timing of phase 1 deformation at Late Paleozoic to Early Mesozoic, and the timing of phase 2 and phase 3 as Jurassic. However, the plutonic bodies used to constrain the age of phase 3 are located in areas where this deformational episode is not strongly developed and may not have affected a competent plutonic body. Thus, the above minimum age assigned D  3  is suspect  R E G I O N A L CORRELATIONS A N D TECTONIC INTERPRETATIONS / 119 6.1.3.

Metamorphic zones are sharply offset across the North Arm of Quesnel Lake northwest of the study area where a probable late brittle fault places sillimanite grade rocks against chlorite grade rocks.

Metamorphic grade increased through phase 1 and phase 2, peaking late in or following phase 2 but prior to the onset of phase 3. Absolute timing of metamorphism has been inferred from  cooling ages in several locations. Sphene  Isoceles  Peak  yields a  U - P b date of 174±4  from  the  Quesnel Lake Gneiss near  M a for cooling  through  isotherm (Mortensen et al., 1987).

Widespread hydrothermal retrogression observed in rocks around Ogden Peak is also documented to the northwest in the Three Ladies Mountain Area (Getsinger, 1985) and  along the  East Arm of Quesnel Lake near  Isoceles Peak (Montgomery, 1985;  McMullin, oral comm., 1987). These three areas outline a northwest trending zone of retrogression which roughly follows stratigraphy and the suture zone but cuts sharply across metamorphic zone boundaries.

TECTONIC IMPLICATIONS  Observations of structural and metamorphic styles in the Ogden Peak area add detail  to  existing models  which  outline the  geologic evolution of the  Intermontane  Belt/Omineca Belt boundary in central British Columbia. Prior to the accretion of allochthonous terranes from the west, siliciclastic and carbonate  sediments had accumulated along the western shore of North America in a  marginal  basin  or  shelf  setting  (Struik,  1982).  Sediments  comprising the  Snowshoe  Group included siliclastic and volcanic sediments, as well as carbonates.

Fold styles are controlled by lithology and position within the structural succession. In the allochthon, folds are tight to isoclinal at the margin and open upwards, and axial planes are marked by pressure solution and slaty cleavage developement  In rocks of the  Snowshoe Group tight to  isoclinal folds are accompanied by discrete zones of mylonitization and brittle faulting immediately below the suture (Fillipone, 1985), but at deeper levels brittle surfaces  are  lacking.

The  absence of easterly verging folds in the Ogden Peak area suggests that either: 1) the thrust surface  has ramped high above present exposures or 2) overthrusting is much  less than that observed at Crooked Lake, and the suture did not extend above the Ogden Peak area.

The absence of these cuspate zones around Ogden Peak is again evidence that the area is structurally far removed from the zone of convergence.  R E G I O N A L CORRELATIONS A N D TECTONIC INTERPRETATIONS / 124 Several  models have  verging structures  been  proposed  to  explain the  to later west verging structures  change  from  early east  (Ross et a l , 1985; Brown  et al.,  1986). A simple model proposed by Ross et al. relates the change in vergence to a switch in subduction direction (Figure 55). Following initial obduction, the oceanic slab carrying Quesnellia is subducted beneath the leading edge of North America, producing the observed change to westerly vergences. This model requires that west verging phase 2  folds  situated  structurally  well  below  the  margin  (near  synchronously with phase 3 folds at the margin, with the metamorphic  peak  conditions are  also attained  later  to  Ogden  Peak)  formed  attendant implication that  the  east  An  east-stepping  metamorphic front would be expected with thrusting induced tectonic loading occuring later to the east A followed  recent by  west  model  proposed  directed  by  "back  Brown  thrusting"  et from  al.

This model may not apply to the Quesnel Lake region, where detailed mapping has not shown the existence of back thrusts. However, the back thrust model is attractive in that it allows contemporaneous metamorphic peak conditions and phase 2 folding throughout the area. A  third  possibility  is  that  east  directed  subduction  occurs  throughout  convergence, and that obduction of Quesnellia represents a short lived accretion event in which high level volcanic and sedimentary rocks are decoupled from the subducting slab. East verging folds would be concentrated along the presently exposed suture zone in  this  model, and  west  verging  folds  would  package at all stages of convergence. Additional  form  throughout  study of the  the  autochthonous  nature of mafic and  ultramafic sequences exposed along the margin will help in evaluating this proposition.
