Cretaceous Spinney Hill Sand in West-Central Saskatchewan

R. G. Edwards


The Lower Cretaceous Spinney Hill member is a sandstone facies developed within the lower beds of the Joli Fou formation of west-central Saskatchewan. The member is composed of inter-bedded marine shales and fine grained, well sorted glauconitic sandstones, and has a maximum thickness of 110 feet. It has a tongue-like area of deposition and represents the off-shore marine phase of deltaic and tidal flat sedimentation. The source of the Spinney Hill sands was the Precambrian Shield north and east of the area that the sand now occupies.
