Major- and Trace- Element Geochemistry of Kimberlitic Rocks in Northern Alberta

Samples from the Mountain Lake pipes and the Buffalo Head Hills and Birch Mountains fields contain low SiO2 and Na2O/K2O, with Cr, Ni, MgO, rare-earth elements (REE), Zr and Nb concentrations elevated relative to their abundance in common crustal ... Show Abstract

Diamond and Metallic-Mineral Potential of the Peerless Lake Map Area, North-Central Alberta

A regional geochemical sampling program for diamond and metallic-mineral potential was completed during the summer of 1998 in the Peerless Lake map area, north-central Alberta. The area encompasses the 1997 discovery of diamondiferous kimberlites ... Show Abstract

Geochemical Orientation Surveys (Fiscal Year 2000-2001) for Kimberlites in Northern Alberta

Geochemical Orientation Surveys (Fiscal Year 2000-2001) for Kimberlites in Northern Alberta In northern Alberta, indicator mineral analysis may not be effective for detecting kimberlites because kimberlites are decoupled from streams draining ... Show Abstract

Regional Stratigraphic Framework of Buffalo Head Hills-Peerless Lake Region, Northern Alberta

The Buffalo Head Hills-Peerless Lake (BHH-PL) region in northern Alberta is well known for its prolific oil and gas production. During the Paleozoic, the BHH-PL region was a shallow shelf to basinal marine setting and dominated by carbonate, shale ... Show Abstract

Petrographic Characteristics of Selected Kimberlitic Rocks in Northern Alberta

Abstract: This report investigates the petrogenesis of kimberlite in Alberta. Five kimberlite pipes in the northern Alberta kimberlite province were selected for detailed petrography: K4 and K6 from the Buffalo Head Hills and Legend, Phoenix and Kendu from the Birch Mountains. The main objective is to complement and expand upon the whole-rock geochemistry with optical mineralogical observations of selected pipes. A petrographic-geochemical comparison shows identification of the primary mineral assemblage, together with whole-rock geochemical interpretation, that uses both major and trace elements. This provides a complementary tool to classify Alberta kimberlitic rocks.
