The Alaska Highway through Southwestern Yukon is located in the discontinuous permafrost zone with many areas of the highway corridor associated with degrading permafrost. Given the strategic value of the corridor, it is critical to have a clear understanding of permafrost characteristics and...
Characterizing the Organic Composition of Snow and Surface Water Across the Athabasca Region: Phase 2Download
This study was conducted to characterize the composition of polar dissolved organic compounds present in snow and surface waters in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region (AOSR) with the goal of identifying whether atmospherically-derived organics present in snow are an important contributor to the...
This pilot study was conducted by Alberta Innovates – Technology Futures (AITF) to characterize the composition of organics present in snow and surface waters in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region (AOSR) with the goal of identifying whether atmospherically-derived organics present in snow are a...
Genesis and controls on mineralization at the Hammer Zone silver showing, Mount Mye Trend, hosted by the Anvil Batholith, South-Central YukonDownload
When Silver Range resources acquired the Keg property in 2010, one of the prospects included was the Hammer Zone. Ensuing mapping and surface sampling found the Hammer Zone to be a small, bonanza-grade, epithermal silver system contained entirely within the Anvil Batholith. Initial petrographic...
Geochemical Characterization and Fluid History of the Tiger Zone; a Tertiary Distal Carbonate-Replacement Intrusion-Related Gold Deposit, Central YukonDownload
A paragenetic and geochemical study has resulted in the classification of the Tiger zone as a Tertiary-aged intrusion-related gold deposit. Gold-bearing mineralization occurs in two geochemically and temporally distinct assemblages. The first assemblage contains carbonate-replacement,...
Isotopic and Geochemical Tracers for Fingerprinting Process-Affected Waters in the Oil Sands Industry: A Pilot StudyDownload
A pilot study was conducted by Alberta Innovates – Technology Futures during 2009 and 2010 to assess potential for labelling process-affected water from oil sands operations using a suite of isotopic and geochemical tracers, including inorganic and organic compounds in water. The study was...
This report describes the methods and samples utilized (to 2014) within the Canadian Centre for Isotopic Microanalysis (CCIM), University of Alberta, for routine analysis of δ13CVPDB, δ15NAIR, and N abundances of diamonds by secondary ion mass spectrometry (Cameca IMS 1280). Analyses by...
Carbon isotope analyses of gases extracted from drilling muds while drilling in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) can be used to create carbon isotopic depth profiles. These profiles provide essentially continuous data through the stratigraphic section, offering a unique opportunity to...
Sedimentology, diagenesis, and dolomitization of the Brac Formation (Lower Oligocene), Cayman Brac, British West IndiesDownload
The Oligocene Brac Formation is the oldest part of the Bluff Group that is exposed on Cayman Brac. Sediments of the Brac Formation were deposited on a small, open bank in shallow marine waters. Today, the formation is composed of limestone, finely crystalline dolostone, and coarsely crystalline...
