GEOLOGY, ORE DEPOSITS, AND MINERAL POTENTIAL OF THE SEWARD PENINSULA, ALASKA By C. L. (Pete) Sainsbury l/ INTRODUCTION The writer first began geologic studies on the Seward Peninsula in ; between and he was continuously engaged in studies of the geology and mineral resources of the region for the U.S. GeologicalFile Size: 4MB.

CONVENTIONAL OIL, Geological Survey of Canada NATURAL GAS, Geological Survey of Canada In , Robert Bell’s Report on Part of the Basin of the Athabasca River, North-West Territory, was published, providing extensive details of the geological characteristics of the region, with special attention given to the oil sands. Neither of these sources has as yet proved worthy of development, the sandstones proving too hard for working profitably, and the beach sand deposits too impure or too small. In a deposit of sandstone was found near the town of Peace River, and is the subject of this report, since it offers good prospects as a source of glass sand.

GEOLOGY & RESERVES PHYSIOGRAPHY The limestone belt of the Kopili Valley Area constitutes the South Eastern flank of the Shillong Plateau and comprises of small flat topped hillocks with elevation varying from m to about m above mean sea level (MSL). The highest altitude ( m) in the region has been observed at. The Canadian oil sands (COS) a.k.a. “tar sands” represent the world’s largest heavy oil reserves, and combined with its conventional oil resources, Canada is second only to Venezuela worldwide. Only 12% of these reserves are recoverable with today’s technologies, which, at present production of million barrels a day, is enough for.

Athabasca oil sands mine: Oil sands mining complex along the Athabasca River in Alberta, Canada. The Athabasca Oil Sands are the largest oil sands deposit in the world.

It is the second-largest accumulation of oil in the world after Saudi Arabia. Image by NASA / Earth Observatory. Enlarge image. Whereas the Athabasca oil sands lie close enough to the surface that the sand can be scooped up in open-pit mines, and brought to a central location for processing, the Peace River deposits are considered too deep, and are exploited in situ using steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) heating through the injection of steam, that reduces the bitumen's viscosity, allowing it to be pumped to the Country: Canada.

A brief overview of the geology of heavy oil, bitumen and oil sand deposits M. Gingras1 and D. Rokosh2 1Dept. of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Alberta 2Dept. of Physics, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada Introduction There are three major oil sand areas in Canada, all in Size: KB.

The Athabasca oil sands lie along the Athabasca River and are the largest natural bitumen deposit in the world, containing about 80% of the Alberta total, and the only one suitable for surface mining, according to a Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers publication.

With modern unconventional oil production technology, at least 10% of these deposits, or about Gbbl (27 × 10 ^ 9. The Green River oil-shale deposits in western United States and a number of the Tertiary lacustrine deposits in eastern Queensland, Australia, are lamosites.

Marinite is a gray to dark gray to black oil shale of marine origin in which the chief organic components are lamalginite and bituminite derived chiefly from marine phytoplankton. The Geology of the Oil Sands Many years of scientific study were required in order to develop an understanding of the nature, extent and origin of Alberta’s oil sands.

Initially, government was the primary sponsor of this research, but as time passed industry also. atlas, 15 oil sands deposits were identified in the three oil sands areas: Athabasca (six deposits), Cold Lake (four deposits), and Peace River (five deposits).

A resource is that amount of a geologic commodity that exists in both discovered and undiscovered deposits—by definition, then, a “best guess.”Reserves are that subgroup of a resource that have been discovered, have a known size, and can be extracted at a profit.

For example, of the world's estimated oil resource of three trillion barrels, the world's reserves are estimated at about a. The study area encompasses the northern part of the Athabasca Wabiskaw-McMurray oil sands deposit, from Townships 91 to and Ranges 6 to 20 west of the fourth meridian. Most of the bitumen reserves in the deposit are contained in laterally discontinuous, upward-fining channel sand bodies in the McMurray Formation.

Geologic features of the Athabasca oil sands The Athabasca oil sands deposit is the largest Cretaceous oil sands deposit in Alberta, covering an area of ab km 2 (Conly et al. ).Most of the bitumen deposits are found in the McMurray Formation, a layer of shale, sandstone, and oil-impregnated sands formed during the Cretaceous period by river and ocean processes.

Geology and Resources of Some World Oil-Shale Deposits. Cover. Colorado. Top right: Photo of large specimen of Green River oil shale interbedded with gray layers of volcanic tuff from the Mahogany zone in the Piceance Creek Basin, Colorado.

This specimen is on display at the museum of the Geological but lack petroleum reserves, Geology. In book: Geology of the Netherlands (pp) Good reservoirs for oil are found in marine transgressive sands (Rijswijk Member), and in prograding shoreface sands (Berkel Sandstone.

The renowned authors present a modern, unified treatment of economic geology, the study of geologic characteristics and the genesis of ores in the earth's crust. Ore deposits are explored in relation to plate tectonics, petrology and isotope and fluid inclusion techniques.5/5(1).

The book is in general very comprehensive, although it lacks any description of iron-oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposits, the first of which (Olympic Dam in South Australia) was discovered in For an up-to-date text, the reader can consult the "recent classic" by Robb Introduction to Ore-Forming by: GEOLOGY AND ORE DEPOSITS OF THE SHAFTER MINING DISTRICT, PRESIDIO COUNTY, TEXAS By CLYDE P.

The geology of ore deposits by Guilbert and Park (y) submitted 2 years ago by JimvirGeologer Hi, im a student badly want to study ore deposits, and i find this book very essential to my understanding for the topic.

The purpose of this report is to discuss the geology and resources of some selected deposits of oil shale in varied geologic settings from different parts of the world.

This report also presents new information on selected oil-shale deposits that was not available at the time Russell's book on world oil shales was published (Russell, ).

To add to Patrick Cooper's good discussion of the steps in identifying worthwhile areas to drill it is worth looking at some of the tools used to see what is underground. When you are in undrilled terrain and there are no existing holes with logs. "Modern civilization's dependence upon an increasing volume and diversity of minerals makes the search for new ore deposits ever more difficult.

Now available from Waveland Press, Guilbert & Park's text presents ideas, principles, and data fundamental for beginning economic geologists to understand the genesis and localization of ore deposits and of the minerals associated with them/5(3).

Caineng Zou, in Unconventional Petroleum Geology, 1 Open Mine Production. When oil sands thicker than 3 m are above the ground or are buried at less than 75 m, open mine production is commonly used.

Open mine production has evolved from the wheel excavators and conveyor belts in the past to the present giant electric forklifts and transport trucks. This book will be appreciated by students, teachers and professional geologists for its clarity of expression and scholarship of content." - Dr Noel C.

White - Consulting Economic Geologist and Honorary Research Professor, CODES, University of Tasmania "If you've been searching for a modern textbook on metallic ore deposits, this is a good by: The Alberta oil sands are found in at least four major deposits, the geographical location of which is shown in Fig.

The estimated oil-in-place reserves are shown in Fig. As a result of the drilling which has occurred in the past decades, an estimate has been prepared of the extent of the deposit available for surface mining ( feet or less of overburden) and in situ techniques.The Peace-Athabasca Delta is located at the western end of Lake Athabasca, and was formed over thousands of years from the deposition of sediment carried by the Athabasca and Peace rivers.

The Delta is bounded by the Birch Mountains in the southwest and by the Caribou Mountains in the northwest, and lies west of the Canadian Shield (PADPG ).
