      Some studies have been made of gross physical properties and general mineralogy of the Ordovician metabentonites, for example by Ross () The A.P.I. reference book of clay minerals describes K-bentonite samples from High Bridge, Kentucky and Tazewell, Virginia, of some southern, eastern and middle western states has become in-.   The Estonian and Leningrad oil-shale deposits of Ordovician age along the southern coast of the Baltic Sea in northern Estonia and eastward into Russia are kukersites. Evaluation of Oil-Shale Resources Relatively little is known about many deposits of oil shale and much exploratory drilling and analytical work still needs to be done.

      The geology of New York State is made up of ancient Precambrian crystalline basement rock, forming the Adirondack Mountains and the bedrock of much of the state. These rocks experienced numerous deformations during mountain building events and much of the region was flooded by shallow seas depositing thick sequences of sedimentary rock during the Paleozoic. 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 .

THE MINERAL CONSTITUTION OF SOME ORDOVICIAN SHALES OF EASTERN AND SOUTHERN ONTARIO by A. Sadler* SYNOPSIS Ordovician shale specimens from formations belonging to the Richrnondian, Maysvillian, Edenian, and Chazyan stages were sampled from several localities in Ontario.

The materials were subjected to various physical and. The mineral constitution of some Ordovician shales of eastern and southern Ontario. Mines Branch Res. Rep. R Venkataraman, S. Quartz as an index mineral in pedogenic studies. During the Ordovician period, eastern Ontario was covered in shallow seas.

This produced the limestones which are now present in the Peterborough, Marmora and Madoc areas, which were laid down on the Precambrian basement rocks, some to million years ago. Paleozoic rocks in southern Ontario. This industrial mineral production includes gypsum, salt, limestone, shale, sandstone, lime, and portland cement.

Inoil and gas production in southern Ontario from the Paleozoic rocks amounted to 37, Several changes in stratigraphic nomenclature have been made since the publi. A 6 cm thick K-bentonite, herein defined as the Russell Bed, occurs in an Upper Ordovician deep-basin shale succession in eastern Ontario, Canada, forming part of the distal TaconCited by: 7.

Upper Ordovician and Lower Silurian strata of southern Ontario and Manitoulin Island remains problematic (see Figure 1). A read through this field guide, which has not attempted to. This book was on Middle Ordovician trilobites of the Ottawa area.

W.A. Faunas and stratigraphy of the Ordovician black shales and related rocks in southern Ontario. Transactions of the Royal Society of Canada, sec. 4, SINCLAIR. G.W. Some Ordovician trilobites from Ontario. Transactions of the Royal Canadian. Ordovician strata are widespread in southern Ontario, occurring at or near surface throughout eastern and south-central Ontario and in the subsurface of southwestern Ontario.

Key references for the Ordovician of southern Ontario include Sanford (), Liberty (), Wilson (), Williams () and Bernstein (). Lower Ordovician. Craigleith, Ontario rests on the southern shore of the Georgian Bay. The bedrock exposed in the area consists of slightly tilted layers of limestone and shale, which were originally deposited approximately million years ago.

Fossils of the once abundant sea-creatures in this area can be seen in some of the weathered surfaces. The Collingwood oil shale samples from southern Ontario also show chemical and optical evidence of a significant contribution by G. prisca to their organic matter.

However, in this case there were also inputs from other algae and especially bacteria (as is evident from the predominantly amorphous appearance of the organic matter) which diluted. Geology is a science which focuses on the study of solid Earth, the rocks of which it is composed and the processes by which it changes.

It provides insight into the Earth's past including the evolutionary history of life and past y is commercially important for mineral exploration and for evaluating natural resources.

It also helps find solutions to. A 6 cm thick K-bentonite, herein defined as the Russell Bed, occurs in an Upper Ordovician deep-basin shale succession in eastern Ontario, Canada, forming part.

The Hirnantian δ 13 C curve from Anticosti Island, Quebec is closely similar to those of southern Ontario. Traditionally, the Ordovician–Silurian boundary has been placed at the base of the Manitoulin Formation, but the new results suggest that it is more likely to be at, or near, the base of the overlying Cabot Head Formation.

The rest of Ontario’s mines are mainly located in the southern part of the province and produce minerals such as silica, gypsum, talc and salt. Figure 1 shows the breakdown of mines in Ontario. Figure 1. Types of mines operating in Ontario (MNDMF ) The “Ring of Fire”. Bivariate and multivariate analyses of well-preserved specimens of four species of the Ordovician–Silurian brachiopod genus Parastrophina from eastern North America, the Tarim Basin of Northwest China, and Kazakhstan revealed that the subelliptical shells of Parastrophina hemiplicata from southern Ontario are less globose than the subpentagonal shells of.

Finding evidence of altered volcanic ash (K-bentonite beds) in the Ordovician rocks of Eastern Ontario and the Ordovician rocks of Eastern North America would not be unusual, as occurrences have been reported for over eighty-five years, and the K-bentonite beds have been used as Ordovician stratigraphic marker horizons over much of the eastern United States and southern Ontario.
