A cored section in the Imperial Westlock No. 14–24 well (Lsd. 14, Sec.24, Tp.59, Rge.26, W.4th Meridian) in northeastern Alberta is proposed as a type reference section for the Majeau Lake Formation, and it is proposed that Texaco McColl Majeau No. 1 (Lsd. 12, Sec. 1, Tp. 57, Rge. 3, W. 5th Meridian) be formally adopted as the type section well. The formation is 216 ft thick in the reference well. The conodont fauna suggests that the Majeau Lake Formation lies within the middle Polygnathus asymmetrica (to Iα) Zone of the German Devonian standard section.
