We have resulted from samples sent to laboratories: MEMR labs in Amman and Ingrain international labs in Abu Dhabi and Canada. Additionally, we sent out oil shale samples to ThyssenKrup owning the ATP technology in Alberta, Canada. Partial results are promising.
The objectives of this activity is to form a geological understanding of the Oil Shale lithofacies, distribution, richness, thickness and overburden distribution. The resources and their reserves are calculated and geochemical analyses and evaluation performed. During the implementation of the exploration program QEI also focused on studying any minerals of value that might be available in the MOU block. A number of samples were analyzed to determine the physical and chemical properties.
