Capsule Geology

At the Kwokullie showing, about 1 metre of coal is reported near the bottom of a roadside burrow pit at a depth of approximately 6 metres. The pit has been subsequently filled in. The presence of coal was confirmed when a small sample was brought back to the district geologist at Charlie Lake (B. Baraniski, personal communication, 1985). The actual thickness and the host formation is uncertain though Geological Survey of Canada Map 1448A would suggest the Upper Cretaceous Dunvegan Formation as host.
