...Dale R. Dolphin; J. E. Klovan ABSTRACT The Upper Devonian, Frasnian, of Alberta contains a large number of carbonate complexes bounded by shale. Both the argillaceous and the carbonate facies are exposed in the Rocky Mountains, where they are assigned to the Fairholme Group. This study is concerned...
