GSC C-117704, Topkapi Resources (limestone clasts) (Permian of Canada)

Also known as MVA(F)85-330A

Where: British Columbia, Canada (49.3° N, 121.8° W: paleocoordinates 21.4° N, 36.3° W)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Celia Cove Member (Harrison Lake Formation), Cisuralian (298.9 - 272.3 Ma)

• The Celia Cove Member is Early Jurassic in age, but fossils from the clasts are much older. The conodonts and radiolaria suggest a Middle to Late Triassic (Ladinian to Early Carnian) age for the chert clasts

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lithified limestone

Size class: microfossils
