Trans-Hudson orogeny explained. The Trans-Hudson orogeny or Trans-Hudsonian orogeny was the major mountain building event that formed the Precambrian Canadian Shield, the North American Craton (also called Laurentia), and the forging of the initial North American gave rise to the Trans-Hudson orogen (THO), or Trans-Hudson Orogen Transect (THOT), (also referred to as the Trans. probe Trans-Hudson Orogen Transect, Report of 4th T ransect. Meeting, April 11–12, , Saskatoon, Sask. Edited by Z. Hajnal. and J. Lewry. Lithoprobe Secretariat for the Canadian Lithoprobe. The Wyoming Craton is a craton in the west-central United States and western Canada – more specifically, in Montana, Wyoming, southern Alberta, southern Saskatchewan, and parts of northern called the Wyoming Province, it is the initial core of the continental crust of North America.. The Wyoming Craton was sutured together with the Superior and Hearne-Rae cratons in the mountain.   Trans-Hudson Orogen Transect (THOT) Slave-Northern Cordillera Transect (SNORCLE) Slave craton activities: Paper presented at SNORCLE transect meeting, Calgary, February, Alan G Jones / 15 August /

The Precambrian structure of the north-central section of the United States remains relatively unknown due to the lack of exposed lithologies in North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and parts of Minnesota. The structure is known in general terms from scattered drill holes (Sims, ; Lidiak et al., ; Sims et al., ), outcrops in the Black Hills and the Superior Craton of Minnesota. It gave rise to the Trans-Hudson orogen (THO), or Trans-Hudson Orogen Transect (THOT), which is the largest Paleoproterozoic orogenic belt in the world. It consists of a network of belts that were formed by Proterozoic crustal accretion and the collision of pre-existing Archean continents. Trans-Hudson Orogen Transect have shown that subsequent intracontinental deformation ( Ga) related to collision with Archean cratons and post­ collisional tectonics only served to dismember t~lis microcontinent (Lucas et al., ;. The Eden Lake pluton in the Trans-Hudson Orogen is the first known occurrence of carbonatites in Manitoba. The pluton is largely made up of modally and geochemically diverse syenitic rocks derived from postorogenic magma(s) of shoshonitic by:

It gave rise to the Trans-Hudson orogen (THO), or Trans-Hudson Orogen Transect (THOT), which is the largest Paleoproterozoic orogenic belt in the world. It consists of a network of belts that were formed by Proterozoic crustal accretion and the collision of pre-existing Archean continents. The event occurred billion years ago. Isotopic and structural data from the juvenile Reindeer zone of the Trans-Hudson orogen, northern Saskatchewan, indicate a pre Ga thermotectonic event, possibly reflecting arc-continent collision, followed by a more extensive, nappe-forming, ca.
