Sandstones from the bitumen deposit near Sunnyside, Utah, exhibit many diagenetic modifications that should be considered in any attempt to recover the bitumen. The sandstones generally are subfeldspathic to feldspathic arenites, with varying amounts of carbonate lithic fragments. Detrital feldspars have been partially dissolved to partially cemented by overgrowths, whereas quartz grains have developed syntaxial overgrowths. Many minerals, including quartz, feldspar, illite, mixed-layer illite… CONTINUE READING
