Bromide, iodide and boron in Alberta formation waters

Abstract: More than 860 formation waters from Alberta were analyzed for bromide, iodide, and boron. 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 waters are in the Cretaceous Viking, Bow Island, and basal Belly River formations, with iodide contents generally in the range of 40 to 50 mg/L but reported up to 80 mg/L. Isolated occurrences of formation waters with iodide contents in the range of 47 to 59 mg/L were found in the Lower Jurassic Nordegg Member equivalent and Pennsylvanian-Permian strata, and are possibly geochemically and genetically associated with phosphate rocks. Boron contents up to 920 mg/L have been found in Alberta formation waters, possibly the highest concentration in any subsurface water.

Calcium and magnesium in Alberta brines

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 ... Show Abstract

Distribution and thickness of salt within the Devonian Elk Point Group, Western Canada Sedimentary Basin

Data processing and the application of mapping software resulted in the refinement of the some of the salt boundaries and the production of basin-scale depth to, structure, and isopach maps for the Elk Point salt units. Furthermore, available ... Show Abstract

Industrial Mineral Resources in Alberta Formation Waters

Stratigraphic intervals in four regions of Alberta were previously identified as having formation waters with potentially economic concentrations of calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), potassium (K), iodide (I), Lithium (Li) and bromide (Br). For each ... Show Abstract
