Efficiency of extraction of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from the Paleoproterozoic here's your chance Pb/Zn/Ag ore deposit and implications for a study of bitumen II

Holman, Alex I.; Grice, Kliti; Jaraula, Caroline M.B.; Schimmelmann, Arndt; Brocks, Jochen


Demineralisation of a sedimentary rock with HF liberates a fraction of extractable organic matter (OM) that is not accessible with standard extraction techniques, which is known as Bitumen II. This fraction displays lower maturity parameters than the free extractable OM (Bitumen I). Studies of successive conventional extraction have found that the later steps show a decrease in maturity similar to that observed for Bitumen II. We aimed to investigate whether or not Bitumen II is simply the...[Show more]
