AbstractThe 1:50 000 scale bedrock geological map of Stimson Creek (NTS 82-J/8) is the result of geological fieldwork conducted in 1997 and 1998, combined with reinterpretation of pre-existing maps. The area covered by the map extends from the Alberta syncline westward to the inner part of the southern Rocky Mountain Foothills. Bedrock geology in the Alberta syncline is characterized by gently dipping Upper Cretaceous to Paleocene nonmarine clastic strata. Exposed in the northern part of the area, a narrow zone of hinterland-vergent thrust faults and folds developed in Upper Cretaceous clastic strata that form the upper detachment of a triangle zone. Foreland-vergent thrust faults, folds, and rare back-thrusts developed in Jurassic and Cretaceous clastic strata characterize the Rocky Mountain Foothills. Resistant, marine Mississippian carbonate outcrops in the structurally highest thrust sheet. Deformation is thin-skinned and probably Late Cretaceous to Early Tertiary age. Thick, Lower Cretaceous, igneous-clast-bearing, incised, channel-fill conglomerate occurs in the Corral Creek area.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The 1:50 000 scale bedrock geological map of Stimson Creek (NTS 82 J/8) is the result of geological field work conducted in 1997 and 1998, combined with reinterpretation of pre-existing maps. The area covered by the map extends from the Alberta Syncline westward to the inner part of the southern Rocky Mountain Foothills. The map outlines the surface distribution of potential aquifers in this drought prone area and will be of interest for groundwater exploration as well as petroleum exploration.
