The Slide Mountain Terrane is a late Paleozoic terrane made of a complex of oceanic rocks in northern and southern British Columbia, Canada. These oceanic rocks were derived from the seafloor of the prehistoric Slide Mountain Ocean, the Intermontane Plate, which was subducted under the North American plate.[1]
