Twenty thin sections produced from core samples from thirteen Alberta wells were sent to Calgary Rock and Materials Services Inc. for description and photographs according to specific criteria requested by the Alberta Geological Survey. The criteria were established to aid our understanding and evaluation and estimation of shale- and siltstone-hosted hydrocarbons. This client report is a compilation of the thin section descriptions and images from the samples.
The thin sections were taken from core from the Doe Creek and Dunvegan formations.
