The Finlay tephras is the term for two tephra deposits in northern British Columbia, Canada. It takes its name from the Finley River and was deposited just before 10,220-10,560 years ago. The source for the two tephra deposits is unknown but were likely erupted during two closely spaced periods of volcanism at one or two volcanoes associated with the Northern Cordilleran Volcanic Province.[1] Volcanoes suggested to have erupted the tephra include Hoodoo Mountain, Heart Peaks, the Mount Edziza volcanic complex and Level Mountain.[1]
