These two zones are interpreted as having been deposited on a wave dominated coast. They typify upward coarsening sequences in much of the Lower Cretaceous of northeastern British Columbia. Similar cycles have been observed in the underlying Gething Formation and overlying Boulder Creek (Paddy - Cadotte) as well as the Notikewin of Alberta.

  Cores containing the Bluesky Formation and related strata of the underlying Gething Formation and the overlying Wilrich Member were systematically logged and sampled for their micropaleontological content. The various datasets were then integrated to provide enhanced paleoenvironmental interpretations. Formation of the Coast Range Plutonic Complex. Accretion of the Insular Super Terrane.
