Abstract(Summary)
The Devonian Stratigraphic Framework study is part of the Mackenzie Project of GEM2, upgrading the multifaceted knowledge on the economically important Devonian strata of the region. The field work was conducted between July 12 - August 05, 2016, within NTS map areas 106G and 106 H. The Devonian team has measured 8 outcrop sections (974 m in total) located along the northern edge of the Mackenzie Mountains: Powell Creek (four sections), Rumbly Creek tributary waterfall, Rumbly Creek Canol, Turnabout Creek, and Rumbly Creek West Ridge. These sections cover the Devonian succession from its base to the basal part of the Imperial Formation. Most of the measured intervals were surveyed with spectral gamma-ray scintillometer for correlation with subsurface sections in Peel and Mackenzie plains. To strengthen the biostratigraphic framework, seventy-five samples for conodont biostratigraphy were collected from the studied formations.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Devonian Stratigraphic Framework study is part of the Mackenzie Project of GEM2 upgrading the multifaceted knowledge on the economically important Devonian strata. The field work was conducted as part of Colville Hills Field Party (July 12 - August 05, 2016) within NTS map areas 106G and 106 H. The Devonian team has measured 8 outcrop sections (974 m in total) located along the northern edge of the Mackenzie Mountains: Powell Creek (four sections), Rumbly Creek tributary waterfall, Rumbly Creek Canol, Turnabout Creek, and Rumbly Creek West Ridge. These sections cover the Devonian succession from its base to the basal part of the Imperial Formation. Most of measured intervals were surveyed with spectral gamma-ray scintillometer for correlation with subsurface sections in Peel and Mackenzie plains. To strengthen the biostratigraphic framework, seventy-five samples for conodont biostratigraphy were collected from the studied formations.
