Limestone on Leyland Mountain near Cadomin, Alberta

Author(s) Halferdahl, L.B. Date 1967-02-01

A knowledge of the composition of some types of rocks is required to learn whether they can be used for certain industrial purposes. This report presents data on the composition of limestone in a stratigraphic interval of almost 300 feet near the top of the Upper Devonian Palliser Formation near the bottom of the southern slope of Leyland Mountain about two miles west of Cadomin, Alberta. The data indicate that it is suitable for the manufacture of cement, calcium building limes, and most chemical limes.
