AbstractTwenty-six brine springs discharging from Paleozoic carbonate deposits were sampled along the eastern edge of the Alberta Basin from two regions, Fort McMurray and Wood Buffalo National Park. Geochemical data indicate that the springs originate as an influx of meteoric and glacial waters that have come into contact with, and dissolved, halite deposits. The trace metal geochemistry indicates that these
waters have interacted with carbonate rocks that have moderate to low base metal content, particularly for the Wood Buffalo region. This suggests that mineralization could be more widespread than recognized. However, there are data gaps between the national park boundary and Pine Point mine site, where mineralization could occur.
