Title: Studies of Insoluble Residues from "Mississippi Lime" of Central Kansas

Author(s): T. C. Hiestand (2)


Stratigraphic studies, facilitated by the use of insoluble residues, in central Kansas indicate the "Mississippi lime" may be subdivided into zones which closely correspond with members of the Boone limestone of Missouri. In typical pools of the included territory the oil is produced from one or both of two of the zones; and accumulation appears to be in many places in stratigraphic traps rather than simply on structural closures. The early warpings, observed in terms of overlaps at the position of the Burlington limestone, apparently were rejuvenated in Des Moines series (Pennsylvanian) time to form most of the important oil-field structures in central Kansas. Consequently the thickness changes depend on inter-zonal relations as well as more or less removal of upper beds of the "Mississippi lime" by pre-Pennsylvanian erosion.
