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

Bromide, iodide and boron in Alberta formation waters

Bromide contents up to 2786 mg/L were found in high calcium and magnesium brines associated with evaporites in the Upper Devonian Beaverhill Lake Formation and Middle Devonian Elk Point Group. The most extensive regions of high-iodide formation ... Show Abstract
