The Fox Hills formation, originally described by Meek and Hayden in Dakota and Wyoming, can be recognized in southern Alberta as a clearly defined mappable stratigraphic unit. It is a marine sandstone overlying a transition zone in the top of the Bearpaw shales, with brackish-water sediments at the top underlying the lowest St. Mary River coal. Its thickness as observed ranges from 21 to 327 feet. It thickens southward and westward. A distinctive faunal list is given and stratigraphic details at nine localities are described.
