Summary

These data consist of sulfur and carbon isotope compositions, concentrations of selected elements, and concentrations of pyrite sulfur and organic carbon in mudstone samples collected from five cores drilled in the Howards Pass district, Yukon-Northwest Territories, Canada. The cores were drilled between 2006 and 2014, site visits and core sampling took place between 2009 and 2016, and laboratory work was conducted between 2011 and 2017. The data were obtained as part of a research project described in the following publication: Johnson, Craig A., Slack John F., Dumoulin, Julie A., Kelley, Karen D., and Falck, Hendrick, 2018, Sulfur isotopes of host strata for Howards Pass (Yukon-Northwest Territories) Zn-Pb deposits implicate anaerobic [...]

Purpose

The data were obtained in order to 1) test a new genetic model for the immense Zn-Pb mineral deposits of the district, and 2) test the reliability of sulfur isotope stratigraphy as a tool for determining the history of ancient marine basins.
