Regional bedrock mapping has revised structural and stratigraphic relationships in the northeastern corner of the Glenlyon map area (NTS 105L). Three structural panels, separated by south and southwest dipping thrust faults, subdivide the area. Cambrian (?) to Ordovician metasedimentary and volcanic rocks underlie the southwestern panel and include all exposures southwest of the Duo fault. Ordovician to Silurian (?) siliciclastic and carbonate strata and phyllite units that are intruded by Late Devonian porphyritic rocks underlie the central panel. Silurian (?) to Triassic siliciclastic and carbonate strata in the northern panel occur to the north, and in the footwall of, the Twopete fault. Mid-Cretaceous granitic rocks that crop out near Kalzas Mountain and occur below the surface near Dromedary Mountain intrude the central and northern panels. Northeast-verging folds and thrust faults deform layered rocks in the northeastern Glenlyon area and are offset by north-south oriented, steeply dipping structures with both normal and strike-slip motion.
Upper Devonian Earn Group strata host layered sulphide bodies and polymetallic veins that contain lead, zinc and silver. This mineralization occurs in the footwall of the Twopete fault, a regional structure that originally developed as a Late Devonian synsedimentary fault.
Ordovician and Silurian (?) quartz-rich clastic rocks are unlike coeval basinal facies rocks mapped elsewhere within the Selwyn basin in Yukon. These rocks represent slope facies deposits that mark a transition from basin to platform that is the northern extension of the McEvoy platform–Selwyn basin boundary.
