... and the Rocky Mountain trench. The eastern boundary of the Foothills belt is marked by a zone of underthrusting, referred to as the triangle zone. The western boundary is defined by the surface trace of major thrusts which bring Paleozoic or older strata to the surface. The Precambrian basement dips regionally...

Usually two or more thrust sheets are stacked in a general anticlinal form and provide multiple objectives. To date, 14 gas-bearing structures...

..., and the sheet on which the Twin Butte well ( Fig. 10 ) was drilled are characterized not only by the very low dips of the thrust planes, but also by the remarkably gentle folds and low bedding dips associated with them from the surface down. These structural conditions persist westward to the mountain front...

... margin. Timing of uplift and cooling of these ductile shear zones can be correlated with formation of major thrust sheets, dated by authigenic illite methods, in the foreland fold and thrust belt ( Fig. 13 ). Displacement on each shear zone links, via the Rocky Mountain basal detachment, into the thin...

... has also been recorded in the nearby Rundle and Sulphur Mountain thrust sheets by Moffat and Spang (1984), who also studied the relation to major imbri- cate thrust faulting, transverse folding fracture patterns, and late normal faulting. They related transverse faulting to thrusting and stated (p...

... sheets are the McConnell, Rundle, Sulphur Mountain, and Bourgeau thrusts (Fig.  1 ; Price 1981 ). The thrust sheets are generally comprised of resistant Paleozoic carbonates that form long linear mountain ranges. Intervening valleys contain less resistant Mesozoic shales and siltstones. Thermal springs...

... transfer of displacement occurred between the majo r thrust sheets (e .g. the Lewis, Rundle, McConnell thrusts) of the belt , and identified the regions of transfer between these grandiose struc- tures. It is obvious that on the scale of these faults there must be a complex interrelation of many types...

.... It is believed that these major thrust sheets root into a basal décollement, known as the Main Himalayan Thrust that represents the interface between the downgoing Indian crust and the overriding Himalayas ( Zhao et al. , 1993 ; Yin, 2006 ; Pasari, 2015 , 2018 ). Although the geology of the mountainous areas...

... (hinterland)-directed drcolle- ment. This upper drcollement overrides an intercutaneous wedge of imbricated thrust sheets to constitute what is termed the triangle zone (Gordy et al., 1977). In southern Alberta, the triangle zone has been described as a narrow zone (5-10 km wide) bound on the east by one...

... the southern Canadian Rocky Mountains, where they can contain prolific hydrocarbon reserves ( Jones, 1982 ) and coal deposits ( Charlesworth et al., 1987 ). Triangle zones are typically characterized by the insertion of a wedge (or thrust sheet) along a detachment. Delamination of strata above the detachment...

...W. B. Gallup ABSTRACT The Turner Valley field is comprised of two Laramide 3 structures, the Turner Valley and Millarville thrust sheets, the latter over-riding the down-plunging north extension of the former. The ancestral fold and age of accumulation are pre-Jurassic and pre-Blairmore...

... they are the Rundle, Sulphur Mountain, and Bourgeau thrust faults (Fig.  4 ). For most of their length, these thrust sheets are relatively uncomplicated homoclinal SW-dipping panels. However, in the Banff area the Sulphur Mountain thrust is crosscut by a swarm of steeply dipping, northeast-trending dextral faults...
