I found two geological maps that cover the area of this alleged
structure. they are:

Kitscoty, Alberta, 1942, A Series, 1:253,440 scale, Geological Map

The Kitscoty, Alberta, 1942, A Series, geological Map shows
that this alleged feature is neither circular nor even a structure.
This map show only relatively flat lying Cretaceous sedimentary
strata that lacks any significant structure to it. There are a
couple of accurate geomorphic features. But neither of them
form a circle. It does not look like there is anything
significant about this "feature."

However, a nearby map that I came across shows what is
called the "Eagle Butte Astrobleme" just west of the Cypress
Hills, Alberta. The map is:
