Title: Alberta Syncline, Canada

Author(s): Theodore A. Link (2)


Results of recent drilling operations, as well as a general consideration of surface evidence, seem to indicate that the great Alberta (Edmonton) syncline is extremely asymmetrical and that its deepest part lies directly beneath, or very close to, the eastern edge of the Foothills Belt rather than a distance of 12-15 miles eastward. This is an inheritance from the larger and older Cordilleran geosyncline. The significance of such a possibility with respect to the possible accumulation of oil or gas and drilling depths is briefly discussed.
