Title: Exploration Frontiers in Western Canada: ABSTRACT

Author(s): W. B. Gallup

Article Type: Meeting abstract


This paper stresses problems concerning exploration in the western part of the Western Canada sedimentary basin, especially in the Alberta syncline and foothills belt. Some reference is made to certain problems elsewhere in the basin.

The area is seen as a true frontier both with respect to geography and geologic thinking. Problems of access and various exploration techniques peculiar to the wilderness areas are described. Geological thinking with respect to the syncline and foothills is changing rapidly and these approaches are also discussed.
