Clay and shale deposits in Ontario

Clay minerals account for about wt.% of most shales and are often responsible for many of the problems encountered when drilling through shales. Shales are now also a focus of interest in terms of unconventional oil and particularly 'shale gas', and we have wide experience in the analysis of samples from many unconventional provinces. Concluding the trilogy on geological materials in construction, this authoritative volume reviews many uses of clays, ranging from simple fills to sophisticated products. Comprehensive and international coverage is achieved by an expert team, including geologists, engineers and architects. Packed with information prepared for a wide readership, this unique handbook is 5/5(1).
Sedex deposits are distinct from the volcanic-hosted massive sulfide deposits described by Huston ().Although these two types of deposits have some similarities, particularly ore deposition on or just below the sea floor, sedex deposits differ in that they occur in sedimentary basins formed in intracratonic and epicratonic rift systems (Large, ), are sediment-hosted, . Oil shale is a rock that contains significant amounts of organic material in the form of kerogen. Up to 1/3 of the rock can be solid organic material. Liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons can be extracted from the oil shale, but the rock must be heated and/or treated with solvents.

Shale is a fine-grained, clastic sedimentary rock, composed of mud that is a mix of flakes of clay minerals and tiny fragments (silt-sized particles) of other minerals, especially quartz and calcite.
Shale is characterized by breaks along thin laminae or parallel layering or bedding less than one centimeter in thickness, called fissility. It is the most common sedimentary rock.
Shale gas or shale oil are not being extracted anywhere in Ontario, and there are no requests to explore for shale gas or shale oil. Regulation Petroleum and natural gas exploration and development in Ontario is currently regulated under the Oil, Gas and Salt Resources Act, Regulation /97, and the Provincial Operating Standards (PDF, MB).

Canada's oil-shale deposits range from Ordovician to Cretaceous age and include deposits of lacustrine and marine origin; as many as 19 deposits have been identified (Macauley, ; Davies and Nassichuk, ).
During the s, a number of the deposits were explored by core drilling (Macauley. One of them was Pacific Clay Products Ltd., at Pleasantside, on Port Moody’s north shore, and it closed inaccording to Clay and Shale Deposits, Bulletin 3o, put out by BC Dept. of Mines in The document states,”fairly extensive stratified deposits of very fine-grained highly plastic blue clay occur at several places in the area.
"Clays, Muds, and Shales" is a lifetime labor by a dedicated, creative, hard-working clay mineralogist, who has always had opinions and always expressed them freely.

Publication date Topics Clay, Shale, Argile, Schiste Publisher Ottawa: Govt. Print. Bureau CollectionPages: All refractory are based on fire clay, what it contains, alumina and silica.
In fact all high heat resistant firebricks are made of fire clay. Like heat resistant mortars, insulation, pottery, ceramics, ceramic blankets or ceramic tiles on space shuttle, origins of these start from the fire clay, its melting starts at Celsius °C or Fahrenheit °F point.
The black Mississippian shale, the Antrim shale, the green Ellsworth shale, and the blue Coldwater shales are very useful in the manufacture of cement, brick and tile. Quarries are worked in them in Alpena, Charlevoix, Antrim and Branch counties.
The mining, production and uses of cement, clay and shale are quite similar. [please note: this page needs to be updated!] This map of shale deposits is from the Ministry of Natural Resources. The map was highlighted in a report from the Ontario Environmental Commissioner - At least two companies currently are preparing to frack around Ontario.
Separate pages on this web site highlight Mooncor and Eurogas. 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. Southern Ontario. There are three major zones identified in Ontario: the Kettle Point Formation, known in Michigan as the Antrim Shale, where it is a source of shale gas.; the Collingwood/Blue Mountain formations, known as Utica Shale; the northernmost limit of the Marcellus Shale that extends up from Pennsylvania and New York State.; While Ontario in had 1, active.

The ratio of clay to other minerals varies. Core photo of. The substantial clay and shale deposits found in the bottom of the river valley were quarried, shaped, baked and stacked for buildings such as Casa Loma, Massey Hall and the Ontario Legislature at.
Back to Rocks and Minerals Articles Kathy Feick “The clay with uses” Bentonite was first named Taylorite, after William Taylor, who studied clay deposits in the United States. The use of the name Taylorite stopped when this group of minerals was split up into separate groupings.
InW C Knight used the name bentonite to refer to this specific type of clay because the.Tertiary sedimentary rocks, undifferentiated: clastic deposits in western Montana, mostly in valleys, and in most places not divided into formations; mostly poorly consolidated gravel, sand, silt, and clay; includes some tuffaceous material and locally lenses of lignite and bentonite; a little hot spring tufa; and in areas not yet mapped in detail, lava may be included.Clay minerals occur in carbonate rocks as partings at the bedding planes, and elsewhere as thin shale laminae.
29 Such partings may consist of flocculated colloidal clay material carried to the areas of deposition, for such material will generally be flocculated (collected into small soft lumps or flakes) when it comes in contact with sea water.
