Abstract

© 2015, National Research Council of Canada. All rights reserved. Strontium isotope ages of foraminifers from Early Miocene to Late Pliocene (Neogene) sequences (21.2–3.4 Ma) are reported for the first time from the Queen Charlotte Basin (QCB) in Queen Charlotte Sound, offshore British Columbia. These ages, together with a revised foraminifer biostratigraphy and log data from two offshore wells, provide a high-resolution chronostratigraphy for the southern part of the QCB. The data show thick 1717–2636 m Miocene sequences overlain by much thinner Pliocene and younger units (
