Phanerozoic Stratigraphy

Stratigraphic Correlations

Manitoba has two Phanerozoic sedimentary basins: the Williston Basin in the southwest and the Hudson Bay Basin in the northeast. Download the stratigraphic correlation chart here to see the correlations within and between these two basins.

The TGI 2: Williston Basin Project has a stratigraphic chart with very detailed correlations between southeastern Saskatchewan and southwest Manitoba. This chart is available for download here.

 

Stratigraphic Map Series

The Manitoba Geological Survey’s Stratigraphic Map Series depicts structural, isopach, subcrop and outcrop information at various scales.

Digital maps published under the series include:
