Cross section of Kapuskasing Structural Zone.

Large-scale thrust-faulting, as we have seen, can bring old, and deeply buried, sheets of crustal rock to the surface. One exposure of very old rocks from down deep is found in LITHOPROBE's Kapuskasing Structural Zone (KSZ) transect area. Because this exposure lets us look into the past, geologists call it a "window".
