New Evidence on the Age of the Sheerness Badlands East-Central Alberta

Gerhard Bihl


Diagnostic fossil angiosperm pollen figured from an outcrop section show that lower Edmonton (pre-Lance) sediments are exposed near Sheerness, Alberta (Sec. 22, Twp. 29, Rge. 13, W 4th Mer.). These strata are of the same age as the beds below the Drumheller Marine Tongue of the Edmonton Formation exposed in the type section at Drumheller, Alberta (Sec. 14, Twp. 29, Rge. 20, W 4th Mer.). Structural data obtained from oil-well records between the two localities substantiate the fossil evidence, which shows that no sediments of Lance age are present in theSheerness badlands.
