The Eagle Plain Basin is an intermontane compressional Mesozoic sediments outlines the present day limits of basin straddling the Arctic Circle in the Yukon Territory, the basin, which is surrounded by outcrop belts in the km north of Calgary and 80 km east of the Richardson Mountains to the east and north, the Ogilvie Yukon-Alaska border.

The Eagle Plain is an immaturely explored area with proven Cretaceous, Carboniferous and Devonian gas and oil measures. Potential exists for further gas and oil discoveries in these and lower portions of the stratigraphic section.

Truncation of the entire upper Paleozoic succession of the area takes place toward the Arctic Coastal Plain beneath the sub-Triassic unconformity. The thick upper Paleozoic succession of the northern Richardson Mountains is less complete than elsewhere in the northern Yukon, and is dominated by terrigenous clastic rocks. Rapid basin subsidence and sedimentary filling took place during this phase. Broad carbonate shelves became established on the western, northern, and eastern margins of the Permian Basin and Central Basin Platform as a result of its equatorial location during this phase. Clastics meanwhile dominated in the basins. By Late Paleozoic time the original Tobosa Basin was divided into the northwest.
