The Cariboo Gold Rush was a gold rush in the Colony of British Columbia, which earlier joined the Canadian province of British first gold discovery was made at Hills Bar in , followed by more strikes in on the Horsefly River, and on Keithley Creek and Antler Creek in The actual rush did not begin until , when these discoveries were widely publicized. The Cariboo Mountains lie within an area enclosed by the great bend of the Fraser River and its tributary, the North Thompson. The mountains extend for about miles ( km) Cariboo Mountains, range in eastern British Columbia, Canada, forming the northern subdivision of the Columbia Mountains.

This guide book has been prepared for the geological field trip on Vancouver Island, preceding the Annual Meeting, Vancouver , of the Geological Association of Canada. It consists of two parts. The first part, after a brief historical introduction, summarizes what is known about Vancouver Island geology. The drainage area for the river sink cave was determined to be km 2 with the river sink at an elevation of m a.s.l. and terrain elevations ranging from to m a.s.l. The slope of the valley bottom averages 21% from the edge of two small active glaciers in the southwest area to the cave entrance (Fig. 6).

The Cascade Range began to uplift during the early Pleistocene era (two million to , years ago). Cutting through the uplifting mountains, the Columbia River created the Columbia River Gorge. The river and its drainage basin experienced some of the world's greatest known catastrophic floods toward the end of the last ice age. The Grand Forks-Eholt map area is underlain predominantly by a sequence of moderately deformed and slightly metamorphosed sedimentary and volcanic rocks, previously termed the "Anarchist Group" and ranging in age from Permian/or Earlier to Middle Jurassic. These rocks are divisible into two distinct sequences: (a) cherts (Knob Hill), quartzites, phyllites, and greenstones of Permian/or Earlier Cited by: 2.
