Geological Survey Professional Paper A.L. (): The vanadiferous zone of the Phosphoria. The Permian Phosphoria formation of the western states contains one of the world's largest reserves of phosphate. Although previous investigations (see especially Mansfield, ), including reconnaissance geologic mapping and sampling, established the location of most of the important deposits and their quality of scattered localities, they were not sufficiently detailed to permit a.

Major components in the Meade Peak Member of the Phosphoria Formation are apatite, dolomite, calcite, organic matter, and biogenic silica-a marine fraction; and aluminosilicate quartz debris-a terrigenous fraction. Samples from Enoch Valley, in southeast Idaho, have major element oxide abundances of Al2O3, Fe2O3, K2O, and TiO2 that closely approach the composition of the world shale average.

Geologic unit mapped in Wyoming: (Thrust Belt) - Upper part is dark- to light-gray chert and shale with black shale and phosphorite at top; lower part is black shale, phosphorite, and cherty dolomite.

(North Wyoming) - Brown sandstone and dolomite, cherty phosphatic and glauconitic dolomite, phosphatic sandstone and dolomite, and greenish-gray to black shale. Wasatch Formation (Eocene) at surface, covers 7 % of this area (Thrust Belt) Main body--Variegated red to gray, brown, and gray mudstone and sandstone; conglomeratic lenses.

(in southwest Wyoming) - Drab to variegated claystone and siltstone, carbonaceous. The origin of V, U, REE and other metals in the Permian Phosphoria Formation have been speculated and studied by numerous scientists. The exceptionally high concentrations of metals have been interpreted to reflect fundamental transitions from anoxic to oxic marine conditions.

Much of the oil in the Bighorn Basin, is sourced by the Phosphoria : Anita L. Moore-Nall, Ranalda L. Tsosie. In the Triassic siliceous formation of Sikhote Alin, carbonaceous silicites occur in the late Olenekian-middle Anisian member (4–20 m) of alternating cherts and clayey cherts (“phtanite member”) near the section base.

The silicites are represented by radiolarian and spicule-radiolarian cherts alternating with clayey cherts. They contain up to % by: 3. McKelvey VE, Strobell JD Jr, Slaughter AL () The vanadiferous zone of the Phosphoria Formation in western Wyoming and southeastern Idaho.

Maximum scour and fill ( to ft) occurs along a northwest-trending feature 10 to 15 miles wide and 70+ miles long in southern Campbell and western Converse Counties. Both regional and local tectonics influenced the geographic distribution and magnitude of the maximum scour and fill features associated with the unconformities.

Cadmium averaged 90 ppm for all samples in the survey with a maximum of ppm in the Phosphoria Formation. In the vanadiferous zone, cadmium levels as high as ppm were found. The vanadiferous zone was orig- inally named for a clearly defined area in Wyoming which contained vanadium concentrations in excess of 1%.
