Geology of the McMurray Formation. Part III, General geology of the McMurray area

In this area, the Mesozoic strata which outcrop in the Athabasca River Valley hold the world�s greatest known reserve of oil and the underlying Paleozoic strata contain notable deposits of halite and gypsum at moderate depth. A description of ... Show Abstract

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

Silica sands in the Fort McMurray area, Alberta

Mica is present in minor amounts but may not have to be removed.There should be few constraints in the exploitability of this otherwise wasted "byproduct". The little or no mining costs, easy access, and unlimited quantities should more than ... Show Abstract

Lithology of the Athabasca Oil Sands

Coarse grained quartzose oil sand with a conspicuous clay matrix cemented in places by quartz and goethite lie at the base of the McMurray Formation and are probably pre-McMurray in age.Most of the lithologic features observable in the Athabasca Oil ... Show Abstract
