AbstractThe Lac Belot map area (NTS 96-L) lies within the Colville Hills region of the Northwest Territories. Bedrock exposures in the area include carbonate and siliciclastic strata ranging from Cambrian to Cretaceous. These strata were deformed in the Cretaceous to Eocene by folding and contractional faulting associated with Cordilleran deformation. A pre-Cordilleran set of approximately north-trending extensional faults are preserved within subsurface Proterozoic and Cambrian strata, and locally influenced the location of Cordilleran structures. A major unconformity between Devonian and Cretaceous strata is marked by tilted Paleozoic strata beneath the Cretaceous. Natural gas has been reported from petroleum exploration wells drilled into Mount Clark Formation (Cambrian) sandstone. Oil-saturated sandstone is documented from a Martin House Formation (Cretaceous) outcrop on the west flank of Belot Ridge.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This publication is a new bedrock interpretation at 1:250,000 scale for the Lac Belot map area (NTS 96L). Stratigraphic and structural features have been reinterpreted based on field observations, petroleum exploration well data, and reflection-seismic data.
