Compiling the World’s Most Comprehensive Geological Atlas.  

The Atlas 2027 project looks to update the much-respected 1994 geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, that has been a bedrock of knowledge for geologists studying and working in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin.

Since 1994, the geological Atlas has proven an invaluable resource to students, in both industry and academia to understanding the nature of the basins formation.  As part of any first step in investment into a resource requires good, concise information.  Since its publication, the basin has seen unprecedented activity, binging new knowledge and insights. 


Hundreds of authors have started working on their chapters.  They are well known both within Canada and internationally as experts in their fields.


New energy plays, such as geothermal and energy mineral resources including helium and lithium will also be featured.


Newly available data and evolving energy trends along with regional context will allow the atlas to continue enabling decision making based on access to the latest scientific knowledge

Atlas 2027 is a not for profit organization

Atlas 2027 will be a free document that can be accessed the world over, a momentous task that will require a variety of resources.  Funds donated to this not-for-profit organization will help pay for software, data and specialist expertise.  Canada’s energy industry is turning a corner and your generous donation will help future geoscientists.
