Updated Information about our SaskSTRAT Course

North Rim, Axiom Exploration, Geometric Wellsite Consultants, and graduate students from the University of Saskatchewan Geological Sciences Department are pleased to facilitate the inaugural SaskSTRAT Short Course on Saturday May 23 and Sunday May 24, 2015.   Lecture-style learning in Day 1 will introduce the economic stratigraphy of the southern part of the province, including:

  • Depositional history, stratigraphy, mineralogy, exploration techniques and mining considerations in Saskatchewan Potash including practical exercises in mineral identification and wireline interpretation
  • Overview of economically significant oil and gas formations including a comparative discussion on west-central versus southeastern Bakken and practical exercises
  • Introduction to wellsite geology and drill cutting analysis and interpretation, including microscope-based exercises

 Multi-media content is used whenever possible to enhance learning.     

 Hands-on learning on Day 2, at the North Rim core lab, will cover the following topics to expand on theory-based learning in Day 1:

  • Potash Drill Core – mineralogy, wireline interpretation, depth correction of core, stratigraphy of Saskatchewan Potash from a regional and local perspective
  • Oil and Gas Drill Core -  examine drill cuttings and core from several formations including the Bakken
  • Deadwood Drill Core – examine and contrast several wells from across the province

 Registration for this course closes May 1, 2015.  Discount pricing is available for students.
