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
Bedrock Geology of the Vermilion Area (NTS 73E), Map 570,
1:250,000 scale, Alberta Geological Survey
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:
Bedrock Geology of the Foremost Area (NTS 72E),
Map 568, 1:250,000 scale, Alberta Geological Survey
The Cypress Hills, Canada
