AbstractThe purpose of this report is to present a hydrocarbon resource potential assessment of Willow Lake, Kelly Lake, Bear Rock, and The Smokes areas of interest. The four areas examined here are located in the central Mackenzie Valley, and together cover an area in excess of 1000 km2. The central Mackenzie Valley is underlain by a succession of folded and thrust-faulted resistant Paleozoic carbonate and siliciclastic rocks overlain by a thin veneer of Mesozoic and Tertiary clastic units; some of the units are prospective for oil and gas. Two exploration wells have been drilled within Willow Lake area of interest. No exploration wells have been drilled within Kelly Lake, Bear Rock or The Smokes areas of interest. This report suggests that the overall petroleum potential of Willow Lake, Kelly Lake, Bear Rock, and The Smokes areas is probably low to moderate.
