The Bearpaw Formation, also called the Bearpaw Shale, is a geologic formation of Late Cretaceous (Campanian) age. It outcrops in the U.S. state of Montana, as well as the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan, and was named for the Bear Paw Mountains in Montana. It includes a wide range of marine fossils, as well as the remains of a few dinosaurs. It is known for its fossil ammonites, some of which are mined to produce the organic gemstone ammolite.

dbo:abstract
  • La Formation de Bearpaw est une formation de roches sédimentaires située dans le nord-ouest de l'Amérique du Nord. Elle affleure dans l'État américain du Montana, ainsi que dans les provinces canadiennes de l'Alberta et du Saskatchewan, à l'est des montagnes Rocheuses. Elle recouvre les formations plus anciennes de Two Medicine, Judith River et Dinosaur Park et est à son tour recouverte par la Formation de Horseshoe Canyon au Canada et la Formation de Fox Hills au Montana. À l'est et au sud, elle se fond dans la Formation de Shale.
