Stoneware and low duty refractory clays associated with the Athabasca Oil Sands

Open-pit mining of the Athabasca Oil Sands in the Fort McMurray area removes most of the overburden from basal McMurray Formation clays which have potential for use as stoneware and low heat duty refractories. The clays have good plasticity and ... Show Abstract

Historical Overview of the Fort McMurray Area and Oil Sands Industry in Northeast Alberta (with expanded bibliographies on oil sands, surficial geology, hydrogeology, minerals and bedrock in Northeast Alberta)

Abstract: This report contains an overview of the exploration and historical development of the Fort McMurray area, with emphasis on development of the oil sands industry in Alberta. This compilation was initiated as part of ongoing work by the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board(EUB), Alberta Geological Survey, on the geology of the Athabasca oil sands deposit. In doing this compilation a number of historical references and survey work were found in Edmonton at the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board, Alberta Geological Survey Office. Other references to this work is scattered throughout the public domain, and has never been compiled as a comprehensive reference list related to the oil sands or to the geology of northeastern Alberta.
