Abstract

The former Antler orogenic belt divides Permian of displaced terranes to the west from Permian continental margin miogeoelinal deposits to the east. We will refer to this important structural feature as the Antler belt. The structural setting of the Permian of the displaced terranes accreted to the North American continent is complex and a subject of much active research. The structural setting of the Permian rocks of the miogeocline is becoming well known and will be briefly elucidated here.
