Geology of Kootenay Coal Measures in Southwestern Alberta

CIM Bulletin, 1949

KOOTENAY strata of Lower Cretaceous age contain much of the highest rank coal produced in Alberta. These strata outcrop in the foothills and mountains of southwestern Alberta and southeastern British Columbia, and the economic value of the coal seams contained in them was evident to the earliest explorers, who refer co them in their journals.
