The ALBERTA LIST is work-in-progress.

I'll post what I have so far, and please ADD TO THE LIST if you can.

MacDonald, R. (2004). Novel technology of Gold Recovery from Alberta Placer Deposits - Phase 2. Alberta Geological Survey website. read at: www.ags.gov.ab.ca
Placer gold is recovered from gravel deposits along rivers and from upland sources. The recovery efficiency of sluices is low (reportedly below 50%) because of the fine nature of the placer gold. Phase 1 work proved the feasibility of gold recovery using coal-oil agglomeration at small bench scale. This project is to scale up to a large batch size process. Adaptation and optimization of this technology would provide an environmentally friendly means to increase gold recovery from Alberta placer deposits using in-province materials (i.e. heavy oil and bituminous coal). No details seem to have been published since.

C.W. Ammenís Ammen On Platinum Based on the author's experience as a professional chemist and metallurgist, this book will give the reader a better understanding of complex ores and how the precious metals are bound together and it will allow the reader to understand these bonds. Understanding these bonds will give the reader insight as to how he might approach the separation of the precious metals contained in complex ores and concentrates.

Hey Shiver - well done! Those are terrific extra references for Alberta, and many would be nigh impossible to find without your digging. Later I'll go back up the thread and insert your discoveries, in a 'Shiver colour' so anyone can spot the update immediately.
