Alberta clays and shales : summary of ceramic properties

Ceramic test data for more than 200 deposits of clays and shales in Alberta resulted largely from early investigations of the Federal Department of Mines (1912-15, 1932) supplemented by more recent work of Alberta Research ... Show Abstract

Alberta Bentonites

Low yields, high grit content, or thick overburden reduce the desirability of other deposits.The paucity of glass shards and the mineralogy of the sand and silt fractions suggest rhyodacite as the composition of the parent volcanic ash for each ... Show Abstract

Calcium and magnesium in Alberta brines

Approximately 850 subsurface brines from Alberta containing more than 20,000 mg/L calcium and more than 3,000 mg/L magnesium were studied to determine their commercial potential. Knowledge of the regional compositional gradients, hydraulic-head ... Show Abstract

Basement structure in central and southern Alberta: insights from gravity and magnetic maps

Identification of brittle faults in the Alberta Basin is critical to hydrocarbon and mineral exploration, as well as to greenhouse-gas geological sequestration studies. The present study used regional, publicly available gravity and aeromagnetic ... Show Abstract

Petrographic studies of coals from Alberta plains

Eleven coal regions in the Alberta plains, identified suitable as feedstock for on-site conversion by liquefaction and pyrolysis, were analyzed for their petrographic composition and rank determination by reflectance analysis. Reflectivities ... Show Abstract
