Gething Formation is a stratigraphic unit of Lower Cretaceous age in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. It is present in northeastern British Columbia and western Alberta, and includes economically important coal deposits. The formation is named for Gething Creek, a right tributary of the Peace River west of Hudson's Hope, and the nearby Gething Mountain.

It was first described by F.H. McLearn in in the Peace River Canyon. Get this from a library. The Gething Formation at Peace River Canyon, British Columbia. [Donald F Stott]. ABSTRACT. A large slab of arenaceous siltstone was collected from strata of the Gething Formation (Aptian, Lower Cretaceous) in the Peace River Canyon of northeastern British Columbia, Canada.

More than footprints between and cm in length were found on a single bedding plane within the slab. These were made by a minimum of four individuals that apparently were feeding.

The northeastern British Columbia deposits are in the Foothills and Plains coalfields, together known as the Peace River coalfields. The Foothills coalfield extends for km along the eastern flank of the Rocky Mountains. The coals are distributed through a stratigraphic interval of more than m, and are hosted by five Lower Cretaceous units, the most important of which are the Gates Formation (Fort St.

The Peace River Formation is 60 feet (20 m) thick on average. The formation has different extents at different stages, with the Paddy Member present only in the Peace River Country in northern Alberta south of Clear Hills, while the Cadotte Member and the Harmon Member occur in both Alberta and north-eastern British Columbia.

Physiography. Type specimen: NMCa footprint. Its type locality is miles upstream from Gething's mine, Peace River Canyon, which is in an Albian terrestrial sandstone/coal in the Gething Formation of Canada. Ecology: ground dwelling carnivore.

Northeastern British Columbia has a long history of vertebrate footprint discoveries and research dating back as early as the s. Initially, the majority of the research attention went to the large-scale in situ track exposures in the Gething Formation (Lower Cretaceous: Aptian/Albian) exposed along the Peace River Canyon near the town of Hudson’s Hope (Sternberg, ; Currie, ).

Type specimen: BCPMPMA P (now RTMP), a footprint. Its type locality is north shore, Peace River Canyon, which is in an Aptian terrestrial siltstone in the Gething Formation of Canada. Ecology: ground dwelling carnivore.

Its type locality is 2 miles upstream from Gething's mine, Peace River Canyon, which is in an Albian terrestrial sandstone/coal in the Gething Formation of Canada.

It is also one of the most unusual, curving nine degrees along its metre (foot) length. Kiskatinaw Provincial Park, situated right beside the bridge, provides tent sites for camping and river access.Abstract. Fragmentary but associated dinosaur bones collected in from the Pine River of northeastern British Columbia are identified here as originating from an ankylosaur.

The specimen represents only the second occurrence of dinosaur skeletal material from the Cenomanian Dunvegan Formation and the first from Dunvegan outcrops in the province of British Columbia.
