Geochemistry and geochronology of the Precambrian Basement Domains in the Vicinity of Fort McMurray, Alberta: A Geothermal PerspectiveDownload
The geochemistry and geochronology of the Precambrian basement in the vicinity of Fort McMurray was investigated to evaluate the feasibility of geothermal heat production. The basement is composed of older (1.95-1.98 Ga) and younger (1.92-1.94 Ga) granitoids suites of the Taltson Magmatic Zone...
Magnetotelluric Imaging of Electrically Anisotropic Crust Near Fort McMurray, Alberta: Implications for Engineered Geothermal SystemsDownload
The goal of this thesis is to investigate the character of the basement rocks beneath the oilsands region around Fort McMurray in the context of developing engineered geothermal systems (EGS). Magnetotelluric (MT) data were collected at 94 stations on two profiles near to Fort McMurray and...
Regional Geophysical Study of the Athabasca Region, Northeastern Alberta: Implications for Geothermal DevelopmentDownload
The Athabasca region located in Northeast Alberta, Canada, hosts many ongoing projects of bitumen extraction from Cretaceous oil sand and Devonian carbonate reservoirs. Despite the importance of the Athabasca region as one of the largest bitumen reserves in the world, the geology and geophysics...
