Baechler and Boehner (2014) suggested that active karst solution of saline evaporite
rocks on Cape Breton Island can occur locally at depths exceeding 400 m.
Rum to spend a minimum of $250,000 in Year 1, drilling the lake to earn a 51% interest in Lake Mackay's potash and other evaporite
But because this part of the sulfur cycle was thought be minor in comparison to sulfate evaporite
burial (which does not release oxygen), its effect on oxygen levels was also thought to be unimportant.
Alan Kendall introduces marine evaporites
by noting that evaporite
mineral crystallization from subaqueous settings is most prevalent at the top or bottom of the water column.
Among their topics are the quaternary sedimentology of the Arabian/Persian Gulf and its geological impact; re-evaluating the Holocene evolution of Arabian coastal sabkas based on stable-isotope analysis 40 years after Shearman's first view; the geochemistry and nature of organic matter of the Pleistocene-Holocene carbonate-evaporite
sediments of Al-Khiran in southeastern Kuwait; the role of bacterial sulphate reduction in carbonate replacement of vanished evaporites
with examples from the Holocene, Jurassic, and Neoarchaean; salt tectonics and structural styles of the western High Atlas and the intersecting Essaouira-Cap Tafelney segments of the Moroccan Atlantic margin; and the petroleum exploration challenge of carbonates and evaporites
of the Upper Jurassic Arab Formation in Abu Dhabi.
A large portion of Grizzly's 100% owned MAIM potash permits exist in close proximity to or directly contain areas that are underlain by potash bearing beds within the uppermost portion of the Prairie Evaporite
1998) estimate the change from lacustrine clays to evaporites
and dune sediments at Lake Lefroy to have occurred between 700 and 400ka (Table 1).
During exposure, some quartz silt was brought into cracks while evaporite
crystals were growing.
beds are mainly sylvinite (co-deposited sylvite and halite) with carnallite in places.
The regional gravity surveys confirmed the existence of various structures that may have created topography favorable for evaporite
accumulation and subsequent traps, which potentially could host mineral rich brines.
rock, such as gypsum, anhydrite, and rock salt are nonporous (no storage potential), but do provide a highly impermeable barrier (seal) to the migration of subsurface fluids.
The 160 square kilometre Mariana project strategically encompasses an entire mineral rich evaporite
basin that ranks as one of the more prospective salars, or 'salt lakes' in the region.
