Sandstone-Hosted Uranium Potential of Alberta: Study of Oil and Gas Well Logs (tabular data, tab delimited format) This dataset evaluates the sandstone-hosted uranium potential of Alberta. An Alberta Geological Survey database of oil and gas well logs were queried to identify wells with gamma values greater than 300 API (American Petroleum Institute units). An algorithm written for this analysis queried more than 48 000 gamma ray logs from more than 22 000 wells. Of those, 11 476 readings greater than 300 API, within the upper 500 metres, were found in 6176 wells. We selected 1318 wells, verified the anomaly and determined rock types using a combination of gamma, density and resistivity logs. This dataset is associated with Alberta Geological Survey Open File Report 2009-0012. 2020-12-10 Government of Alberta AGS-Info@aer.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and Technologydigital dataexplorationgeologylog analysismineral potentialradioactivitysandstone hosted uranium deposituranium72e72l72m73d73e73l73m74d74e74l74m82g82h82i82j82n82o82p83a83b83c83d83e83f83g83h83i83j83k83l83m83n83o83p84a84b84c84d84e84f84g84h84i84j84k84l84m84n84o84palbertacanadaGovernment information Alberta GeoportalHTML https://geodiscover.alberta.ca/geoportal/rest/metadata/item/8c1004ecf7614b08a07d199e6689208e/html DIG_2009_0016.zipother https://static.ags.aer.ca/files/document/DIG/DIG_2009_0016.zip
