AbstractHumic matter associated with heavy metal minerals present in Athabasca oil sands, was isolated using sodium hydroxide extraction and by dissolving the mineral matter in acids. These fractions were analysed by elemental analysis and infrared, proton and 13C NMR spectroscopy. Comparison of this data with the corresponding data for humic acids from sub-bituminous coal and peat and asphaltenes from bituminous feed stock, suggest the similarity of this humic material with humic matter from sub-bituminous coal. It appears to have very little potential for hydrocarbons production because of its position in the Van Krevelen diagram. Origin of this organic matter could be different from that of the greater part of the bitumen of the Athabasca oil sands.
