Petrography of the Mountain Lake Pipe, Grande Prairie Area, Alberta, Canada

Twelve samples rich in altered juvenile olivine from the Mountain Lake Pipe (holes ML95-1 and ML95-3) were studied for texture and mineralogy. Contrary to an earlier interpretation that Mountain Lake Pipe rocks are entirely extrusive crater-facies ... Show Abstract

Regional Evaluation of the Coal Bed Methane Potential in the Plains and Foothills of Alberta, Stratigraphy and Rank Study

Abstract: The coal resource in place in Alberta is tremendous by whichever estimate is used. One such zone, the Paleocene Ardley coal zone, has calculated resources in the order of 425 gigatonnes along a 250-mile (400 kilometre) subcrop and dipping, to more than 2950 feet (900 m) depth, 90 miles (150 km) southwest into the Alberta Syncline. The geologic model developed for the Ardley Coal zone involves a continental setting in an alluvial plain environment characterized by widespread peat swamps that were far removed from marine conditions. Due to extremely low relief, relatively rapid subsidence and sediment starvation, thick and extensive peaks developed. In general the seams thicken and more seams are present with increasing depth. These deeper coal resources may contain large volumes of gas.

Petrography of Ardley Coals, Alberta - Implications for Coalbed Methane Potential

The seams were sampled at mine sites west of Edmonton (Genesee, Highvale, Whitewood) and from outcrop sections in the Red Deer Valley, east of Red Deer. The seams were sampled 1) by full seam channel samples, which were subsequently analyzed by ... Show Abstract

Polyphase Deformation in the Canadian Shield of Northeastern Alberta

Two generations of structures can be distinguished in the granite gneisses and intercalated high-grade metasediments of the basement neiss complex, which has been shown to be Archean by radiometry dating. In some areas, D2 folds form parts of domes ... Show Abstract

Deformed Lower Cretaceous coal-bearing strata of the Grande Cache area, Alberta

The Lower Cretaceous Luscar Group includes a thin basal conglomerate (Cadomin Formation), a predominantly non marine sandstone and shale unit that locally contains coal (Gladstone Formation), a shallow marine shale and sandstone unit (Moosebar ... Show Abstract

Polyphase Metamorphism in the Canadian Shield of Northeastern Alberta

During the Archean metamorphic cycle, metasediments were metamorphosed under high pressure granulite conditions (M1). Coexisting garnet-biotite and garnet-cordierite pairs in the metasediments allows estimation of P-T conditions during the ... Show Abstract

Remnants of (Possibly Diamondiferous) Ultramafic Igneous Rocks in Bedrock of the Kakwa/Wapiti area, West Central Alberta

Bedrock sampling at 23 sites, heavy mineral separation and microprobing confirmed that indicator minerals of ultramafic igneous rocks are present in Cretaceous bedrock of the Wapiti area (NTS 83L). Para-magnetic heavy minerals (>3.3 SG) from ... Show Abstract
