Insoluble Residue--Magnesium Content Relationship of Carbonate Rocks from the Devonian Cedar Valley Formation

Ramon E. Bisque, John Lemish


The insoluble residue content of carbonate rocks from several quarries in the Devonian Cedar Valley Formation of eastern Iowa is shown to be related to the magnesium content. The relationship of "soluble iron" content to magnesium content is plotted to demonstrate that a high soluble iron content is found only in rocks with a high magnesium content. The data presented may be of interest to persons concerned with the problem of dolomitization.
