THE MIDDLE DEVONIAN WINNIPEGOSIS FORMATION OF WEST-CENTRAL SASKATCHEWAN. By Eric Grant Streeton. Get PDF (5 MB) Abstract. The Winnipegosis Formation of west-central Saskatchewan consists of three members which are, in ascending order, the Lower Winnipegosis Member (Lower Member), the upper Winnipegosis Member (Upper Member) and the Ratner Author: Eric Grant Streeton.

Strata of the Middle Devonian Winnipegosis Formation were deposited in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, south-western Alberta, North Dakota, and Montana in the Elk Point Basin south of the Peace River-Athabasca Arch (Figure 1).

The Winnipegosis is divided into several formations in different areas by different authors. Jones () divided the formation into lower and upper Winnipegosis; Reinson and Wardlaw () added the Ratner Member to Jones' terminology; Kendall () provisionally described the lower member in Saskatchewan as the Elm point Member and suggested that the Ratner may be basal Prairie.

ABSTRACT The stratigraphic interval discussed in this paper includes the Elk Point group and Dawson Bay formation of Middle Devonian age. The Elk Point group (60– feet thick) comprising in ascending order the Ashern, Winnipegosis, and Prairie Evaporite formations is overlain by the Dawson Bay formation (– feet thick).

98, p. The geological history of the Devonian. Seismic surveys have been used to investigate the Prairie Evaporite and Winnipegosis Formations in the vicinity of some potash mines in south-central Saskatchewan. The geophysical data, together with data from drill holes and underground mining, have revealed a complex pattern of reeflike Winnipegosis carbonate mounds.

The Prairie Evaporite Formation, also known as the Prairie Formation, is a geologic formation of Middle Devonian age that consists primarily of halite and other evaporite minerals. It is present beneath the plains of northern and eastern Alberta, southern Saskatchewan and southwestern Manitoba in Canada, and it extends into northwestern North Dakota and northeastern Montana in the United.

Dolomitized calcrete is a widespread diagenetic feature in the uppermost portions of the Middle Devonian Winnipegosis mud mounds in the subsurface of south–central Saskatchewan. Individual calcrete profiles are composed of 2 to 5 horizons, including (in descending order) laminar crust, massive, pisolitic, breccia, chalky and transitional horizons.

Winnipegosis Formation: Givetian: dolomite, bituminous carbonates, anhydrite: m ( ft) Ashern Formation: Eifelian to Givetian: argillaceous dolomite and dolomitic shale and siltstone; minor anhydrite: 55 m ( ft) Meadow Lake Formation: Eifelian: dolomite with mudstone interbeds, limestone and sandstone at base: 56 m ( ft).

The Ratner Member was previously included in the Middle Devonian Winnipegosis Formation of the Elk Point Basin. Recent studies, however, have demonstrated that the Ratner Member was not genetically related to the Winnipegosis Formation in terms of depositional environments and thus should not be part of the Winnipegosis Formation.

The Middle Devonian lower Prairie Evaporite Formation of central Saskatchewan. The carbonate platform of the lower Winnipegosis member is overlain locally by carbonate banks with up to feet of relief, which are included in the upper Winnipegosis member. Basinal areas between these banks became the sites of accumulation of the lower.

The Middle Devonian Winnipegosis Formation and the Upper Devonian to Lower Mississippian Bakken Formation in southeastern Saskatchewan have been studied to assess their thermal maturity levels with respect to petroleum generation.

The Middle Devonian Elk Point Group contains several units with hydrocarbon potential including the Evie Formation in British Columbia, the Keg River Formation in northern Alberta, and the Winnipegosis Formation in east-central Alberta and southern Saskatchewan. Many of these are proven source rocks of oils occurring in Middle Devonian reservoirs.

Early exploratory wells drilled in southwest Saskatchewan during the s encountered naturally occurring CO2, N2, and He. These gases are trapped in clastic reservoirs of the Cambrian Deadwood Formation, and in carbonate reservoirs of the Middle Devonian Winnipegosis and Souris River and Upper Devonian Duperow formations (Lee.

The Middle Devonian Winnipegosis reefs in the southern Saskatchewan portion of the Elk Point Basin contain extensive vadose diagenetic features, such as dissolution breccia, and cavities/caves filled by microbialite, pisolite and anhydrite.

Basinal facies adjacent to reef buildups are characterized by the Ratner laminite, which consists of three brining-upward successions of laterally. L J. Jones, “The Middle Devonian Winnipegosis Formation of Saskatchewanâ€, Saskatchewan Department of Mineral Resources, Report No.
