This Geologic Map was funded in part by the United States Geological Survey National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program under assistance award numbers 04HQAG0061 and 05HQAG0025. The views and conclusions contained in this document are those of the authors and should not be interpreted as necessarily representing the official policies, either expressed or implied, of the United States Government. Additional support from the DGGS NPRA Foothills Research Program made this mapping project possible. We appreciate the generous contributions of Anita Harris, United States Geological Survey, retired, for providing conodont ages. Dave Houseknecht, United States Geological Survey and Mike McDonough, Encana, provided valuable interpretive input and discussion. Many thanks to our technical reviewers, Dave LePain and Ken Bird. Andrea Loveland cheerfully assisted as our STATEMAP intern and vectorized the map topography. DeAnne Stevens provided guidance during the air photo interpretation and orthorectification processes. Gates of the Arctic National Park access was permitted through the Alaska Mineral Resource Assessment Program under the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.

This portion of the northern Brooks Range foothills is thought to be strategic for natural gas in particular, and is currently under lease to both major and smaller independent petroleum exploration companies. New mapping in this area provides an opportunity to study, in outcrop, the stratigraphy and structural styles of the source and reservoir rocks that enrich the Colville basin to the north. The mapping extends structural and stratigraphic models developed during previous mapping along the foothills to the west, providing baseline geologic data to the private and public entities that identify, develop, and manage resources that area.

Data sources used in this process:
Data sources used in this process:
Geologic point, line, and polygon data were determined visually using color infrared aerial photographs at a scale of approximately 1:63,360 and topographic maps at scales of 1:63,360 and larger. The geospatial data included in this project are digitized from a Mylar compilation of geologic field information produced on USGS topographic base maps of the area. AAAGES font was used to display geologic age symbols. Geologic data included in the compilation are the field maps and notes from this project. Feature attributes were checked by the geologists who made the field observations. To check attribute accuracy, a check plot was visually compared to the geologist's original compilation. Discrepancies between the digital geospatial dataset and the original analog or digital compilation were corrected as needed.
Locations were determined in the field using raster images of topographic base maps and Garmin GPS units. Data were mapped directly on scale-stable copies of the topographic base maps and digitized using heads-up monitor display and a mouse. Point data were plotted directly from the GPS data. Most digitized positions on the map are estimated to have better than 5 m horizontal accuracy.
This dataset includes geospatial information about beds traceable on air photos and/or in the field, geologic units and contacts, fold and fault traces, strike, dip, and fold axis attitude, the trace of the Lisburne phosphate outcrop, and planar structure orientations.
Polygon topology is present on appropriate geospatial data; others are line or point data.
