AbstractThe Devonian of the Mackenzie Project area is a thick (locally over 1 km) stratal package composed of carbonates, evaporites, and siliciclastics, recording the evolution of depositional environments from the passive-margin carbonate platform through the sediment-starved epiplatform anoxic basin to the foreland basin. The activity focuses on the economically prospective Lower Devonian Peel, Arnica, Landry, and Bear Rock / Fort Norman formations dominated by shallow-water carbonates and the Middle-Upper Devonian Horn River Group (Hare Indian, Ramparts, and Canol formations) dominated by kerogen-rich shales. New materials include 1847 m of measured cores, about 200 m of measured outcrop sections, chemostratigraphic data with ICP-MS/ES, Rock-Eval VI pyrolysis/combustion, XRD, and d13C-d18O of carbonates. Multi-tool logging of best stratigraphic sections allows for refinements in lithostratigraphic (sequence stratigraphic) framework, which is underway.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Devonian of the Mackenzie Project area is a thick (locally over 1 km) stratal package composed of carbonates, evaporites, and siliciclastics. The Devonian Stratigraphic Framework sub-activity focuses on economically prospective Lower Devonian strata dominated by shallow-marine carbonates and the Middle Devonian strata dominated by hydrocarbon-rich shales. New materials include 1847 m of measured cores, about 200 m of measured outcrop sections, chemostratigraphic data with ICP-MS/ES, Rock-Eval VI pyrolysis, XRD, and isotope composition of carbonates. Multi-tool characterization of best stratigraphic sections allows for refinements in lithostratigraphic (sequence stratigraphic) framework.
