Geologic map of the Kavik River area, northeastern Brooks Range, Alaska

Metadata Updated: July 7, 2022

Report of Investigation 2011-3A, Geologic map of the Kavik River area, northeastern Brooks Range, Alaska, presents 1:63,360-scale geologic mapping of the Mt. Michelson B-5 and C-5 quadrangles and the western portion of the B-4 and C-4 quadrangles. The Kavik River region is one of the few areas that permit examination of all three depositional megasequences of northern Alaska in close association. Several occurrences of oil-stained sandstone have been noted in outcrop and the undeveloped Kavik field that lies in the north-central part of the map is estimated to contain 165 billion standard cubic feet of natural gas. In concert with geologic mapping, stratigraphic units significant for oil and gas exploration were examined in detail, including acquisition of a number of measured sections. Local analysis of the sedimentology and stratigraphy focused particularly on the more prospective Beaufortian and Brookian units. The dataset contains geologic, structural, stratigraphic, and geochronologic data organized according to the GeMS and AK GeMS mapping schemas. The complete report, geodatabase, and ESRI fonts and style files are available from the DGGS website: http://doi.org/10.14509/22602.
