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

Hydrogeology of the Tri-Creek Basin, Alberta

Groundwater flow in the Tri-creek basin, a 23-square mile (60 square km) area of the Rocky Mountain Foothills in western Alberta, is controlled by the surficial and bedrock geology. Response to changes in recipitation is generally rapid, although ... Show Abstract

Multiple Glaciations in the Foothills, Rocky Mountain House area, Alberta

The purpose of the program is to publish hydrogeological maps-graphic portrayals of the groundwater onditions and their controlling factors-for each of 47 different areas in the province. The main items on a typical map sheet are a central main ... Show Abstract

Stratigraphy and Petrology of the Lower Cretaceous Blairmore and Mannville Groups, Alberta Foothills and Plains

The upper unit consists of lensing, grey, siliceous sandstone, siltstone, and varicoloured shale, grading up in the southernmost Foothills into a thick succession of bedded pyroclastic detritus (Crowsnest Member ).These beds grade laterally in the ... Show Abstract

Regional Evaluation of the Coal-Bed Methane Potential of the Foothills/Mountains of Alberta

Regional Evaluation of the Coal-Bed Methane Potential of the Foothills/Mountains of Alberta For coal-bed methane (CBM) evaluation purposes, they can be divided into shallow (200 to 2500 m depth) and deep (over 2500 m depth) coal zones. The gas ... Show Abstract

Alberta Foothills Coal, Extracts from Published Reports of Research Council of Alberta, with Annotations

Abstract: Recent months have seen an explosive growth of interest in Alberta Foothills coals, chiefly those coals suitable for the manufacture of metallurgical coke. A considerable amount of geological data on coal-bearing strata in the area has emanated over the years from the Geological Survey of Canada in the form of Memoirs, Reports and Preliminary Reports; and the Canada Mines Branch has issued a number of chemical analyses of cools from producing mines in its irregular publications entitled 'Analysis-Directory of Canadian Coals'. However, the only single compendium of information on the chemical nature and industrial value of Alberta coals has been Report 35 of the Research Council of Alberta (Stansfield and Lang, 1944), unfortunately slanted towards the defunct domestic market and in any case now out of print. The Coal Division of the Research Council is in the process of compiling a somewhat different and more up-to-date report on systematics and chemistry of Alberta coals, but this cannot be available to the general public for at least another year. Meantime there is a continuing demand for an elementary introduction to the study of coal, especially of the coals of the Alberta Foothills; and, as a temporary measure, Research Council staff has extracted, by xeroxcopy (chiefly from Report 35 and Report 66-5 (Campbell, 1966)), the following notes which are believed to be most pertinent to the present situation, together with a few paragraphs of annotation where necessary.
