AbstractThe 2019 field work on Prohibition Creek (SE of Norman Wells), a joint effort of GSC-Calgary and the DEEP research group of the University of Liverpool (UK), aimed to remeasure and sample the Eifelian-Frasnian succession of the Hume Formation and the Horn River Group. The latter is well exposed along Prohibition Creek and recommended as a reference section for the 'Canol shale play' in the adjacent Mackenzie Valley as rocks in studied outcrops occur in the zone of relatively low thermal maturity with high possibility of good preservation of primary paleo-magnetic, organic-matter, and geochemical signals. This report delivers illustrated baseline descriptions, gamma spectrometry logs, and correlation of measured sections (=field stations), and gives startup information on the field sampling based research. Match of sections from 2019 with sections measured in 2015 identifies a few miscorrelations in earlier versions, leading to improved gamma spectrometry empowered correlation with the subsurface.
