This portion of the northern Brooks Range foothills is thought to be strategic for natural gas in particular, and is currently under lease to both major and smaller independent petroleum exploration companies. New mapping in this area provides an opportunity to study, in outcrop, the stratigraphy and structural styles of the source and reservoir rocks that enrich the Colville basin to the north. The mapping extends structural and stratigraphic models developed during previous mapping along the foothills to the west, providing baseline geologic data to the private and public entities that identify, develop, and manage resources that area.
