Abstract(Summary)
The Canol Formation is thick in paleo-basinal regions of Mackenzie Valley and Peel area where it is considered a frontier shale hydrocarbon prospect. Between these two areas, the Canol thins to 2+ meters where it is draped over Kee Scarp carbonate banks. Stratigraphic position, physical properties, and sedimentary environment of Canol shale in this carbonate-bank area are not well understood. New elemental geochemistry and Rock-Eval6 results from two cored sections shed more light on thermal maturity and chemostratigraphic signatures of the Canol Formation, its correlation criteria with thick off-bank sections, and difference from the overlying black shales of the basal Imperial Formation. With these signatures, the new Mirror Lake Member appears to be a robust and viable unit marking the base of the Imperial Formation. Field notes from Norman Wells quarry provide details corroborating backstepping-drowning model of Kee Scarp carbonate banks and their co-deposition with Canol shales.
