      Scattered off the east coast of the United States are thick limestone deposits. Most dramatic is the Bahamas Bank, an area by miles, where “seismic evidence suggests that carbonate strata may extend down as far as 10 kilometers [6 miles].” Bangor and Monteagle Limestones undivided in part - Bangor Limestone -- medium-gray bioclastic and oolitic limestone, containing interbeds of dusky-red and olive-green mudstone in upper part. Monteagle Limestone -- light-gray oolitic limestone containing interbedded argillaceous, bioclastic, or dolomitic limestone, dolomite, and medium-gray shale.

Texas is approximately bisected by a series of faults that trend southwest to northeast across the state, from the area of Uvalde to and east of these faults, the surface exposures consist mostly of Cenozoic sandstone and shale strata that grow progressively younger toward the coast, indicative of a regression that has continued from the late Mesozoic to the.

Limestone is a carbonate sedimentary rock that is often composed of the skeletal fragments of marine organisms such as coral, foraminifera, and major materials are the minerals calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate (CaCO 3).A closely related rock is dolomite, which contains a high percentage of the mineral dolomite, CaMg(CO 3) 2.

Limestone has two origins: (1) biogenic precipitation from seawater, the primary agents being lime-secreting organisms and foraminifera; and (2) mechanical transport and deposition of preexisting limestones, forming clastic deposits.

Travertine, tufa, caliche, chalk, sparite, and micrite are all varieties of limestone. Limestone has long fascinated earth scientists because of its rich fossil. Limestone also covers much of the country most notably in the midlands and in areas such as the Burren in Co.

Deposits are typically found in shales, cherts, limestone, dolomites and sandstone as well as hydrothermal veins or as chemically dissolved phosphate minerals in igneous and metamorphic rocks. One of the world's largest phosphate deposit is the Phosphoria Formation, located in southeast Idaho.

LOCATION AND SURFACE FEATURES The Bristol Range, Highland, and Ely Range quadrangles make up the larger part of a. rectangular area 35 miles north and south by 24 miles east and west, which lies 19 miles west of the Nevada-Utah line and about miles southwest of Salt Lake City.

The district lies within the Great Basin, a semiarid region of alternating mountain ranges and intermontane plains.

Waitomo’s Limestone Limestones in the Waitomo area were laid down on the bottom of a warm shallow sea around 25 to 40 million years ago. This period of time, and the limestone, is referred to as Oligocene. Limestone around Waitomo ranges from 40% to % calcite (calcium carbonate).

Conglomerate, sandstone, mudstone, limestone, and rock-avalanche breccia (sheet-like deposits of crushed rock) deposited and tilted during widespread normal faulting and basin development.

Sediments, mostly conglomerate and sandstone, are commonly medium to dark brown, reddish brown, or brownish gray; younger strata are generally lighter colors. Gemstones form inside limestone when water carrying dissolved minerals pools inside cracks or voids in the limestone, either seeping down from the surface or forced up from below by geothermal activity.

The minerals in the water slowly crystallize.Gold was also worked at North Arm (South of Gympie) and numerous small occurrences are known elsewhere in the Gympie Geological Sheet area.
