Gorman Creek Formation Kakwa

Gorman Creek Formation Kakwa

n early August 2006, PRPRC palaeontologists received a research permit from BC Parks and a team of three was dispatched to the study area in Kakwa Provincial Park….

The main tracksite is located in the high alpine on a steeply sloping surface over 200 feet in height. The track surface holds hundreds of footprints and scores of lengthy trackways of an impressive diversity of dinosaurs from the Early Cretaceous. The tracksite is part of the Gorman Creek Formation and is one the oldest records of dinosaurs in western Canada. The near vertical wall on which the dinosaur tracks occur is several thousands of square metres in area. It will likely take a few years of research before the scientific documentation is complete.

Given the altitude and orientation of the tracksurface (north-facing), it is only snow-free for a few weeks out of the year. The steeply sloped tracksurface requires the use of ropes and harness to safely access the site, and then there is the ever-present threat of falling rocks. The research team had to hike 1200 vertical feet up to the anchors each day with full packs, conduct physically demanding work on the tracksite while hanging from ropes, and then hike back down at the end of the day.
