Sand and Gravel Resources of the Spirit River Region bounded by the Peace River, Alberta-B.C. Border, Smoky River and Southern Boundaries of Map Sheets 83M/13-83M/16 and 83N/13

Abstract: A compilation and evaluation of existing sand and gravel resource information for the Spirit River area was completed by the Alberta Geological Survey for Alberta Forestry, Lands and Wildlife, Public Lands Division. Data were obtained from Alberta Transportation and Utilities (pit data), Alberta Environment (water well logs) and Alberta Research Council (geological) for the study.The only economic source of gravel in the area is of alluvial origin and consists of terraces and bars primarily in the Peace River valley. Glacial and preglacial deposits occur in the region but are of no importance in the study area.Further gravel exploration should focus on the river valleys. Since gravel is in short supply and exploration prospects are limited, it may be expedient to concentrate on alternative materials or more effective transportation plans rather than primary searches.
