Evaluation of Kaolin in the Whitemud Formation of Alberta For Use as Paper Filler

Author(s) Hamilton, W.N. Scafe, D.W. Date 1989-01-01

This study is a follow-up to an earlier study of kaolin prospects in Alberta and adjacent regions to evaluate the resource potential of the kaolin for use as paper filler. Its objective is to provide an unequivocal evaluation of Alberta kaolins, by comprehensive filler quality testing of the best deposit identified from the previous study. That deposit is in the Whitemud Formation, in the Cypress Hills area of southeastern Alberta.
