In this report, we present data on a Belly River Group outcrop section located on the eastern side of the South Saskatchewan River valley, 50 km north-northeast of Medicine Hat, Alberta. Measured outcrop section T17-R3W4-01 includes the uppermost part of the Foremost Formation, a complete section through the Oldman Formation and the lower part of the Dinosaur Park Formation. The report includes a graphic log of the measured section, with an outcrop gamma-ray curve; a detailed description of the section (avoiding lithofacies interpretation but detailing stratigraphic context where appropriate) with selected photos; and the results of biostratigraphic work on a sample from the Foremost Formation.
