Limestone and Dolomite Prospects for Industrial Use in the Alberta Foothills and Front Ranges

Abstract: This report, produced by Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd. at the request of the Alberta Geological Survey, provides an assessment of the distribution and potential of current limestone and dolomite prospects in the Alberta Foothills and Front Ranges outside of parks, First Nations lands, and current mineral tenure areas. It is part of a project funded by Alberta Energy with the intent to enhance Alberta's mineral geoscience knowledge as well as disseminate existing information. The specific purpose of this report was to provide geoscience information on limestone and dolomite prospects to help guide land use planning decisions. This report provides maps of the Alberta Foothills and Front Ranges with the locations of documented occurrences and quarries of limestone and dolomite and includes short, plain language overviews of limestone and dolomite prospects for the South Saskatchewan, North Saskatchewan, Upper Athabasca and Upper Peace Regional land use planning areas. Emphasis is given to occurrences of high-calcium limestone and high-quality dolomite, although prospective areas of carbonate for use as aggregate or building/decorative stone were also included.  Place Keywords 82g 82j 82n 82o 83b 83c 83d 83e 83f 83g 83j 83k 83l alberta canada foothills Theme Keywords calcium carbonate rocks dolomite geology industrial minerals land use limestone
