Foraminiferal zonation of the Lower Carboniferous Connor Lakes section, British Columbia



Foraminiferal zonation of the Lower Carboniferous Connor Lakes section, British Columbia



Bulletin of Canadian Petroleum Geology 16(2): 147-166



The lower Carboniferous of the Connor Lakes section is about three times as thick as type sections of Mount Head and Banff, suggestive of approach of miogeosynclinal conditions. Ten recognized foraminiferal zones contain abundant endemic North American fauna but also Eurasiatic forms which permit recognition of original lower Carboniferous zonation and allows its extension into the Cordilleras. Two anomalies occur in the "Livingstone' Formation, one the extreme condensation of its lower part where Upper Tournaisian is reduced, second the probable age difference between its top at Connor Lakes and the type Livingstone. The lower unit of the "Mount Head' correlates to the Salter Member to the east, and the middle unit to the Loomis and Marston Members. "Etherington' Formation is equivalent to the lower and part of the middle Etherington at its type section.
