The striking 'fit' of aeromagnetic and gravity data from the Precambrian of northwest Saskatchewan, combined with known and nearby analogous, geological relationships, suggests the presence of a northeast-trending belt, 250 × 20 miles (400 × 30 km), of early Proterozoic (?) metasedimentary rocks, probably magnetite-bearing meta-arkoses. This structural–sedimentary unit might have economic possibilities analogous to other northeast-striking, Precambrian, lower Proterozoic (?), metasedimentary belts of northern Saskatchewan, the Virgin River Belt, and the Wollaston Trend.
