Some magnetic properties of Athabasca Oil Sand samples, Alberta, Canada.
A number of induced and remanent magnetic measurements have been performed on 55 cubic samples, each 8cm3, from a single segment of Athabasca Oil Sand core. Samples are representative of four major lithofacies types. It is concluded that certain magnetic subfacies may result from locally high concentrations of authigenic magnetic minerals such as maghemite or siderite. Such zones may prove to be useful stratigraphic markers in bitumen-saturated samples in which sedimentary structures are usually obscure.-from Authors
