Sequence stratigraphy and coal cycles based on accommodation trends were investigated in the coal-bearing Lower Cretaceous Mannville Group in the Lloydminster heavy oil field, eastern Alberta. The study area is in a low accommodation setting on the cratonic . 3.

Three coal zones occur in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation: the Drumheller Coal Zone (divisible into upper and lower intervals), the Daly-Weaver Coal Zone and the Carbon-Thompson Coal Zone. Thick net coal accumulations are present in the Drumheller Coal Zone (figure 7) with local net accumulations up to 18 m but the coals are somewhat discontinuous. Named as a member of the Price River formation, Mesaverde group, for a coal mine in Coal Canyon, T21S, R17E, Grand Co, UT in the Paradox basin. No type locality designated. Discussed only briefly because it has no bearing on coal resources in area. Ranges from to 1, ft .

And Horseshoe Canyon Formations (Upper Cretaceous) has revealed that a m thick coal-bearing sequence was deposited in marginal-marine, delta plain and fluvial environments.
The lower 40 m thick subsurface sequence, comprising the Bearpaw Formation, was deposited in offshore, shore-face, foreshore, lagoon, swamp and tidal channel environ-ments. Buy Sedimentology of Coal and Coal-Bearing Sequences The recent increase in the search for coal has initiated a dramatic growth in sedimentological research on the origin, formation and environment of coal deposition.
This publication is concerned with perhaps the most important field of coal research, that of coal environments. About this book The recent increase in the search for coal has initiated a dramatic growth in sedimentological research on the origin, formation and environment of coal deposition.
This publication is concerned with perhaps the most important field of coal research, that of coal environments. Abstract A detailed sedimentological analysis of the Bearpaw and Horseshoe Canyon Formations (Upper Cretaceous) has revealed that a m thick coal-bearing sequence was deposited in marginal-marine, delta plain and fluvial environments.
The coal‐bearing unit consists of clastics ranging in grain size up to coarse‐grained sandstone, as well as coals and other carbonaceous sediments. Sandstones have an fining‐upward character and, in outcrop, display lateral accretion by: 5. This study correlates the Horseshoe Canyon-Bearpaw transition and associated coal zones across central and southern Alberta Plains and examines outcrops and associated subsurface strata of the Horseshoe Canyon Formation in the Edmonton area.

The 60m thick, Upper Cretaceous (Campanian - Maastrichtian) Bearpaw - Horseshoe Canyon transition zone is exposed in three-dimensions along the Red Deer Valley and its tributary Willow Creek, near Drumheller, Alberta.
These clastic marine to marginal marine deposits represent shoreface, fluvio-estuarine, lagoonal and coastal plain environments. Given that the Bearpaw – Horseshoe Canyon formation transition is regressive, it is reasonable to assume that this process is the cause of the coastline difference.

Maximum thickness of the Delaware Mountain Group is greater than m near the center of the Delaware Basin (Oriel and others, ). The lithology of this thick basinal section is mostly siltstone and fine-grained sandstone with a few thin limestone beds.

The Upper Cretaceous Horseshoe Canyon Formation of Alberta Plains contains 66 trillion cubic feet (Tcf, trillion m3) gas-in-place (Beaton et al., ), which represents about 40% of the total CBM gas resources hosted by the coal-bearing Upper Cretaceous-Tertiary succession in the Alberta Plains.The Lower Cretaceous Gates and Moosebar Formations in the Northeast Coalfields of British Columbia comprise a m thick interval of marine and non-marine, coal bearing clastic sediments.
