Title: Oil Seepages in Belt Series of Rocky Mountains Near International Boundary

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


Oil seepages issuing from pre-Cambrian rocks thrust over Mesozoic rocks within the Rocky Mountains near the 49th parallel are described. The problems of source beds and reservoir rock are discussed, also brief mention of the structure giving rise to these seepages is made. Upper Paleozoic dolomites and limestones are suggested as source beds and as suitable reservoir rock. The Jurassic and Colorado shales are also suggested sources of hydrocarbons. Overthrusting and underthrusting are postulated.
