a The structure appears to be created in the glacial remains of the Late Wisconsin North American glacial episode, 25,000–12,000 years ago.

The Plevna/Tomvale structure (a possible Whitecourt crater look-a-like) was suggested to me as a possible impact crater some time ago from an unknown source. I was asked to explore it for documentation.

Drilling the site may be the only possible means of identification.
