AbstractThis Open File represents a brief summary of information, gleaned from published literature, on the geology of the Scollard, Willow Creek and Coalspur formations (and equivalents), of Upper Cretaceous-Tertiary age. This compendium, and the enclosed references, can provide a background to further research on these strata, which have both scientific and economic interest. These clastic, generally non-marine rocks are well-exposed in certain localized parts of Alberta and Saskatchewan, include the famed K-T boundary, and also harbour significant potential for shallow gas, coal-bed methane, uranium, and groundwater resources.
