The Frenchman Formation is a division of Upper Cretaceous rocks found in Saskatchewan, Canada. More accurately described as Late Maastrichtian, these rocks contain the youngest of dinosaur genera, much like the Hell Creek Formation in the United States.
The formation was defined by G.M. Furnival in 1942 from observations of outcrops along the Frenchman River in Saskatchewan, between Ravenscrag and Highway 37.

Famous quotes containing the words formation and/or frenchman:
“The formation of an oppositional world view is necessary for feminist struggle. This means that the world we have most intimately known, the world in which we feel safe ... must be radically changed. Perhaps it is the knowledge that everyone must change, not just those we label enemies or oppressors, that has so far served to check our revolutionary impulses.”
—Bell (c. 1955)
“Hard if, though cast away for life with Yankees,
A Frenchman couldnt get his human rating!”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
