AbstractThe objective of this report is to present a hydrocarbon resource potential assessment of Mountain River, Keele River, Ravensthroat/Redstone River, and Drum Lake areas of interest. The four areas examined here are located in the Mackenzie Mountains, and together cover an area in excess of 25,000 km2. The geology of the Mackenzie Mountains is characterized by uplifted, faulted and folded Proterozoic, Paleozoic and Mesozoic carbonate and siliciclastic rocks. Although adequate potential source and reservoir rocks are present throughout the Mackenzie Mountains, their overall hydrocarbon potential is low. Because much of the potential reservoirs are exposed at surface, there is an increased risk of reservoir breaching, or flushing and/or degradation of hydrocarbons by meteoritic or ground water. Much of Mountain River, Keele River, Ravensthroat/Redstone River, and Drum Lake areas of interest have low hydrocarbon potential; the potential is higher where the areas of interest are underlain by the Plateau Overthrust play.
