Comments on Geologic Parameters

16 Rock Mineralogy:

Dolomite, cherty dolomite, and calcite (bedded limestone), with minor amounts of quartz sand (both bedded and dispersed grains) (Derby and others, 1991; Ragland and Donovan, 1991). Rare bedded chert in the Cool Creek Formation (Ragland and Donovan, 1991). "Calcite, dolomite, silica, and minor feldspar cements" (Ragland and Donovan, 1991, p. 14). See also the generalized lithology map of Johnson (1991b).
