Why, it’s a Friday fold, a guest submission, to start off the new year!

A pretty sweet macro fold from the Sekwi Fm of the Mackenzie Mountains on the Yukon – Northwest Territories border. Large-scale fold hinges are common locus points of base metal mineralization along the carbonate platform of the ancestral North American margin.
