Deep electrical structure of Buffalo Head Hills, Northern Alberta: Implications for diamond exploration

Geophysical studies in the Northwest Territories have shown that diamondiferous kimberlite pipes are spatially coincident with a zone of high electrical conductivity in the upper mantle. The apparent spatial coincidence between diamondiferous ... Show Abstract

Silica sands in the Fort McMurray area, Alberta

Mica is present in minor amounts but may not have to be removed.There should be few constraints in the exploitability of this otherwise wasted "byproduct". The little or no mining costs, easy access, and unlimited quantities should more than ... Show Abstract

Subsurface Characterization of Acid-Gas Injection Operations in the Peace River Arch Area, 2007

In the cases of acid-gas injection into deep saline aquifers (Gordondale-Belloy, Mulligan, Pouce Coupe, Rycroft and Wembley), the extent and migration of the acid-gas plume will likely be limited by dissolution, dispersion, residual gas saturation ... 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
