GEOLOGICAL AND GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY OF FLUORSPAR

The part of the Illinois fluorspar field known as the Cave in Rock district is characterized by horizontal deposits of fluorspar that have been formed by re­ placement of certain limestone beds in the Mississippian series of rocks. Unlike the vein deposits of the

The fault systems of the Levias-Keystone and Dike-Eaton areas, in the Kentucky-Illinois fiuorspar district, are a complex northeastward-trending sys- tem and a simple northwestward-trending system of steeply dipping normal faults, associated in part with a lamprophyre dike. Fluorspar mining started in the area about 1900 and, as of 1945, more than 200,000 tons of crude ore probably has been ...

GEOLOGIC FACTOKS IN THE INTERPRETATION OF

The importance of fluorspar to the steel industry and the apparently small reserves in the Illinois-Kentucky field (which produces over 90 percent of the domestic fluorspar) make it desirable to evaluate the geologic factors upon which an earlier estimate of reserves has been made. The structural relations

Geology and fluorspar deposits, Northgate district, Colorado

The fluorspar deposits in the Northgate district, Jackson County, Colo., are among the largest in Western United States. The mines were operated intermittently during the 1920's and again during World War II, but production during these early periods of operation was not large. Mining was begun on a larger scale in 1951, and the district has assumed a prominent position among the fluorspar ...

Fluorspar Statistics and Information - USGS

Fluorspar is used directly or indirectly to manufacture products such as aluminum, gasoline, insulating foams, refrigerants, steel, and uranium fuel. Byproduct fluorosilicic acid production from some phosphoric acid producers supplements fluorspar as a domestic source of fluorine, but is not included in fluorspar production or consumption calculations.
