Geology of the Foothills Belt Between McLeod and Athabasca Rivers, Alberta

Author(s) Rutherford, R.L. Date 1925-06-04

The coal resources of Alberta constitute the outstanding known mineral reserve, and the industry based upon this resource is one of the most valuable assets in the Province. In view of these facts it is apparent that field investigations of the coal deposits should receive first consideration in a program of geological work. A geological survey of a part of the foothills belt was carried on in 1922 and 1923. In 1924 this survey was continued and the following report is based largely on the last season's work. It forms a part of the Sixth Annual Report on the Mineral Resources of Alberta.
