A combination of high resolution cathodoluminsecnce-spectroscopy (HRS-CL) with spatial electron microprobe analysis and optical microscopy is used to determine paragenesis and history of cementation in the limestones and dolostones of Khurmala Formation which is exposed in many parts of northern Iraq. Khurmala Formation was subjected to different d...

The current research deal with evaluating the Late Triassic Kurra Chine Formation using the Rock-Eval Pyrolysis technique in selected wells in Sarta-2 and Tawke-17 Oil fields, and the Sirwan Valley outcrop, in Northern Iraq. A total of twenty-six samples were selected for this study; nineteen cuttings samples from the wells and seven outcrop sam...

Abstract The study of carbonate petrography is essential for understanding reservoir properties and the quality of rock formations. High-resolution cathodoluminescence spectroscopy and optical microscopy were used to determine the impact of cement on the porosity evolution of carbonate rocks of the Kurra Chine Formation at Sirwan Valley, Northern I...
Article
Full-text available
The microfacies analysis and porosity evolution of the Khurmala Formation (Paleocene-Early Eocene) were studied in the Gomaspan and Sheraswar sections in the High Folded Zone, northeastern Erbil City, Kurdistan Region (N-Iraq). Lithologically, the Khurmala Formation in the Gomaspan section is about 23.5 m comprised of thick to massive bedded brecci...
Article
Abstract We present new zircon U/Pb provenance data using laser ablation induced coupled plasma mass spectroscopy (LA-ICP-MS) for eight samples of mature quartz arenites and subarkosic sandstones of the Lower Ordovician Khabour Formation, northern Iraq, to establish their depositional age and provenance. The samples were collected from thinly- to m...

Facies analysis and depositional environment of Baluti Formation (Late Triassic) were studied from the Galley Derash section in the High Folded Zone and Sararu section in Northern Thrust Zone, from Duhok area, Kurdistan region, Northern Iraq. Lithologically, the Galley Derash section comprises 73 m brecciated dolomitic marly limestone, bedded dolom...
Article
Full-text available
The Baluti Formation in the Galley Derash locality is comprised of 73 m brecciated dolomitic limestone in the lower part, alternating with thin bedded dolomitic limestone and dark gray shale in the middle part, then thin to medium bedded brecciated sandy limestone interbedded with dark grey shale in its upper part. The sum of 21 thin sections of th...
Article
Advanced techniques such as scanning electron microscope hot- cathodoluminescence (SEM-CL) and electron probe microanalysis (EMP) as well as petrography are applied to investigate the paragenetic sequence and provenance of intertidal-tidal flat sandstones of the Ora Formation which is exposed in northern Iraq. The Formation consists mostly of super...
Article
Full-text available
Quartz cements of the quartz arenitic sandstones from the Chalky Nasara and Ora sections of the (Devonian-Carboniferous) Ora Formation in northern Iraq have been studied. A combination of hot cathodoluminescence, LA-ICP-MS, and fluid inclusion microthermometry revealed three syntaxial quartz cement generations (Q1, Q2, and Q3). The early Q1 cementa...
Article
Full-text available
Outcrops of the Paleozoic Chalki volcanic rocks are restricted to part of the northern Thrust Zone of Iraq close to Iraqi-Turkish border. Petrographically, the volcanic rocks from the Chalki area are mainly layered, appearing fresh in the field and exhibiting some basaltic lava flows. Porphyritic, amygdaloidal, and microlite-porphyric are the main...

Full-text available
Abstract The Ordovician deltaic to shallow marine Khabour Formation in Northern Iraq consists mainly of sandstone with minor siltstone and interbedded shale. The sandstones are pervasively cemented by quartz that resulted in very little preserved primary porosity. Cathodoluminescence and petrographic studies showed that the silica cementation occ...
