This dataset present the bedrock geology of the Paskapoo Formation in Alberta and its surroundings. The study area extends north of Whitecourt and to the west of Lethbridge. The Paskapoo Formation overlies the uppermost coal seam of the Ardley coal zone of the Scollard Formation. Discontinuous deposits of Neogene gravel or Quaternary sediment unconformably overlie the Paskapoo Formation. The Paskapoo Formation comprises three units. The lowermost unit is correlative with sandstone of the Haynes Member (Haynes aquifer). Overlying the Haynes aquifer is a regionally extensive mudstone- and siltstone-dominated unit correlative with the Lacombe Member (Lacombe aquitard). The uppermost unit is a sandstone-dominated unit, named the Sunchild aquifer.
This map was created to provide a regional frame of the simplified bedrock geology . This dataset is used to realize other themes.
