Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This publication follows the Upper Paleozoic core study (Kabanov & Dewing, 2014) and reports on new pyrolysis and ICP-MS/ES elemental data from core samples collected in 2014. The main goal of study was to highlight tight-reservoir hydrocarbon prospectivity of shales from the central Sverdrup Basin. In addition, a set of samples across stratigraphic unconformities encountered in cores were run for ICP-MS/ES geochemistry to develop unconformity diagnostics and paleoenvironmental reconstructions. Pennsylvanian and Permian basinal shales are divided into (1) red-mottled or oxidized during sea level falls, (2) dark bioturbated, and (3) dark laminated. Preliminary analysis of data from thick (over 2 m) shale units shows general lack of anoxic signatures in all three groups, maximum TOC of 1.84% in Group 3, and Tmax values grouping around the mean of 415.5°C (maximum at 574°C).
