This digital data release includes inorganic whole-rock geochemistry results of samples from selected Alberta geological units. Samples were collected from drillcore at the Core Research Centre in Calgary, the Mineral Core Research Centre in Edmonton, or from outcrop. Geochemistry results consist of whole-rock multi-element analyses suitable for reservoir rock analysis, mineral exploration, and lithogeochemistry.

The strata evaluated included the following geological units in the province: Banff Formation, Barons Sand, Beaverhill Lake Group, Belle Fourche Formation, Belloy Formation, Big Valley Formation, Blackstone Formation, Bluesky Formation, Cardium Formation, Colorado Group, Contact Rapids Formation, Cooking Lake Formation, Doig Formation, Dunvegan Formation, Duvernay Formation, Ellerslie Member, Exshaw Formation, Fernie Formation, First White Specks Member, Fish Scales Formation, Fort Simpson Formation, Gething Formation, Gilwood Member, Glauconitic Sandstone, Granite Wash, Halfway Formation, Ireton Formation, Joli Fou Formation, Kaskapau Formation, Lea Park Formation, Leduc Formation, Loon River Formation, Majeau Lake Formation, Mannville Group, Medicine Hat Member, Milk River Formation, Montney Formation, Muskiki Formation, Muskwa Formation, Ostracod Beds, Pekisko Formation, Precambrian basement, Red River Formation, Rierdon Formation, Rock Creek Member, Sawtooth Formation, Second White Specks Formation, Shaftesbury Formation, Slave Point Formation, Spirit River Formation, Sunburst Sandstone Member, Swan Hills Formation, Swift Formation, Turner Valley Formation, Viking Formation, Wabamun Group, Waterways Formation, Westgate Formation, and Winnipegosis Formation.

This work was completed under the Mineral Grant provided by the Government of Alberta June 22, 2021.
