English: Burgess Shale Formation is a Middle Cambrian age (505 million years old) geologic formation comprised of a black shale which crops out at a number of localities near the town of Field in the Canadian Rockies in the Yoho National Park of British Columbia, Canada. The formation is famous for the exceptional preservation of the fossils found within it, in which the soft parts are preserved.
