This report is a user guide for the database (Alberta Geological Survey Special Report 6). It provides a description, including representative well logs and two cross-sections, of the stratigraphic picks contained in the database as well as descriptions of the database and the method of well log analysis.

In 1986, Alberta Geological Survey began a project to map the McMurray Formation and the overlying Wabiskaw Member of the Clearwater Formation in the Athabasca Oil Sands Area. The data that accompany this report are one of the most significant products of the project and will hopefully facilitate future development of the oil sands.
