      4) Manganese -Iron Deposits Manganese- iron deposits occur as lens-shaped, concordant bodies and fissure fillings in the Carboniferous Um Bogma Formation east of Abu Zenima and Abu Rudeis. The ore lenses average 2 m in thickness, but locally achieve a thickness of 4 m. The host rock consists of red and yellow crystalline dolomite, variegated. Glacial deposit (Qgd)—Dominantly till, outwash, and local glacial lake deposits. Shown only in western and south-central Montana. Laurentide glacial deposits are indicated with a map pattern (legend, plate 1). Glacial lake deposit (Qgl)—Light brown File Size: 4MB.

    Western Kentucky is underlain by westward dipping, semiconsolidated to unconsolidated Cretaceous and Tertiary age sand, silt, and clay. Alluvial and eolian deposits occur throughout western Kentucky and along the Ohio River. Organic-rich marine-continental transitional shales are widely distributed in Guizhou Province, China. Samples from the Late Permian Longtan Formation were investigated using organic petrography analysis, X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, field emission-scanning electron microscopy observations, mercury intrusion capillary pressure and gas adsorption experiments Cited by: 1.

    Leca is a Lightweight Expanded Clay, formed by the heating and firing of clay in a rotary kiln, at temparatures of up to °C. The process transforms the clay into various lightweight ceramic granules, which have a hard ceramic shell and a porous core. Intact Granules. Higher insulation (more closed pores).

Oil shale is an organic-rich fine-grained sedimentary rock containing kerogen (a solid mixture of organic chemical compounds) from which liquid hydrocarbons can be produced, called shale oil (not to be confused with tight oil—crude oil occurring naturally in shales).

Shale oil is a substitute for conventional crude oil; however, extracting shale oil from oil shale is more costly than the Primary: Kerogen, Quartz, Feldspar. Shale tectonics is a relatively common term that encompasses any deformation involving overpressured, undercompacted, fine-grained sediments.

Compared with the processes involved in salt tectonics (see the recent review of Hudec and Jackson, ), shale tectonics also includes deformation driven only by density contrasts, promoting shale upwelling and. Oil shale geology is a branch of geologic sciences which studies the formation and composition of oil shales–fine-grained sedimentary rocks containing significant amounts of kerogen, and belonging to the group of sapropel fuels.

Oil shale formation takes place in a number of depositional settings and has considerable compositional variation. Oil shales can be. Full text of "The clay and shale deposits of Nova Scotia and portions of New Brunswick [microform]" See other formats.

Oil should be present within the Kimmeridge Clay oil shale in the western central zone of the Weald Basin. It has been fairly deeply buried. How much is kerogen and how much is liquid oil is not known at present.

The oil exploration in is directed towards the Kimmeridge Micrite 2. Type Black shale deposits. Black shale-related uranium mineralization includes marine, organic-rich shale, and coal-rich pyritic shale, containing synsedimentary, disseminated uranium adsorbed onto organic material and clay minerals, and fracture-controlled mineralization within or adjacent to black shale by: 6.

In eastern West Virginia and western Virginia where the Marcellus Shale, Mah- antango Formation, Hamilton Group, and Harrell Shale (Butts, ) cannot be differentiated in field mapping (de Witt et al., ), the Millboro Shale (Butts, ) represents these formations.

However, the majority of the in-place oil shale resources remain poorly defined—the most explored deposits are those in the provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick (Ball and Macauley, ; Hyde, ; Kalkreuth and Macauley, ; Macauley, ).

Total resources of a selected group of oil-shale deposits in 33 countries is estimated at billion tons of in-place shale oil which is equivalent to trillion U.S. barrels of shale oil. Clay, silt, sand, gravel and similar materials deposited by rivers and streams.

Clay An earthy material that is plastic when moist but hard when fired, composed mainly of extremely fine plate-like mineral particles. Cuesta Basically, a hill or ridge with a steep face on one side and a gentle slope on the other.

Common minerals in gabbro are plagioclase feldspar, pyroxene, and olivine. Gabbro occurs in the Piedmont and Blue Ridge provinces. Diabase is a rock that is related to gabbro and occurs as dikes and sills in the Piedmont, Blue Ridge, Valley and Ridge provinces, and the Mesozoic Basins sub-province of the Piedmont.

Examples include the uraniferous Alum shale in Sweden, the Rudnoye and Zapadno-Kokpatasskaya deposits in Uzbekistan, the Chatanooga shale in the USA, deposits in the Guangxi Autonomous Region, China, and the Gera-Ronneburg deposit, Germany. Estimates range over 50 million tonnes of uranium in these deposits; they are mostly subeconomic at.

The cherty-clay rocks of the Bazhenovo formation offer prospects for finding a new type of petroleum deposit, as indicated by the flows of oil recovered from it in western Siberia. Jurassic Neocomian bituminous sediments occur in an area of more than one million km/sup 2/ on the West Siberian platform.

Triassic red shale, siltstone, and sandstone occur in three areas in the western Piedmont. The Piedmont Province contains a variety of mineral resources.

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, ).Surficial deposits account for approximately 4 percent of world uranium resources, and are interbedded with sand and clay, usually cemented by calcium and .
