      THE BASE OF THE ST. PETER SANDSTONE IN SOUTHWESTERN WISCONSIN* F. T. THWAITES University of Wisconsin, Madison (Emeritus) The problem of the base of the St. Peter sandstone formation in southwestern Wisconsin has been debated for many years. The paucity of exposures of this contact hampered investigation greatly. SIMULATION OF GROUND-WATER FLOW IN THE ST. PETER AQUIFER IN AN AREA CONTAMINATED BY COAL-TAR DERIVATIVES, ST. LOUIS PARK, MINNESOTA present an overview of the problem. Hult () and Stark and Hult comprise the St. Peter Sandstone of Ordovician age. The aquifer is overlain.

      The St. Peter Sandstone formation covers , square miles of the upper Mississippi Valley, with an average thickness of ’. The thickness of the St. Peter in the Twin Cities area ranges between 80 and ’ (3). It is prized for its pure white sand, and is important as a conduit for groundwater (2).

        The study found that the factors contributing to ground control problems in St. Peter Sandstone mines are: water in roofs, friability of the St. Peter Sandstone, strength variability, and reinforcement techniques. The study proposed the following pillar strength criteria for St Peter Sandstone: S P = + C - h[ + (w/h)].   Buy Lithologic Character of the St. Peter Sandstone and the Everton Formation in the Buffalo River Valley Newton County, Arkansas (Classic Reprint) on .

The St. Peter Sandstone is an Ordovician formation in the Chazyan stage of the Champlainian series. This sandstone originated as a sheet of sand in clear, shallow water near the shore of a Paleozoic sea and consists of fine-to-medium-size, well-rounded quartz grains with frosted surfaces.

The extent of the formation spans north-south from Minnesota to Arkansas and east-west from Illinois into Country: United States. Excerpt from The Problem of the St.

Peter Sandstone The writer feels that The problem of the St. Peter sandstone book significance attaches to the fact that the conclusions finally adopted were entirely contrary to the preconceived ideas held when the study was begun.

Peter Sandstone, and above that lie shale and limestone beds, also followed by an unconformity. The erosion and resulting unconformity that ended the Sauk Megasequence was totally unlike anything we have ever witnessed, and would actually be wholly impossible today.

Commodity: St. Peter Sandstone, a sedimentary rock formation belonging to the Ordovician System, is composed almost entirely of silica in the form of quartz sand grains. Economic Importance: St. Peter Sandstone is used in a variety of ways that enrich the modern way of life.

It has been produced in Missouri for the last years. So the St. Peter Sandstone Aquifer didn’t replenish fast enough to keep up with demand, and the water level kept dropping.

And as the water level drops, concentrations of salts and minerals rise. That includes radium, a naturally occurring carcinogen. Audio Books & Poetry Community Audio Computers, Technology and Science Music, Arts & Culture News & Public Affairs Non-English Audio Spirituality & Religion.

Because of the mostly uniform, quartzose detrital grain composition, diagenesis played a dominant role in reservoir quality development.

The tallest bluff I have seen crops out at Blanchard Springs Recreation Area near the group camp and the amphitheater.

The St. Peter Sandstone is a laterally continuous unit that extends across the entire Illinois Basin, reflecting the broad, relatively flat topography that existed during the Ordovician in the southern Midcontinent (fig.

The sequence thins southward, and varies from about 10 to m. The St. Peter Sandstone was initially interpreted to be only marine in origin, but textures and structures indicative of eolian transport are widely recognized (e.g., Dott et al.

The protrusion is between feet high and 50 feet in diameter. Peter sandstone is believed by geologists to have formed from fine sand deposited along the coastline of a prehistoric sea stretching from Minnesota through Iowa, Illinois, and Missouri approximately million year ago during the Ordovician period.

Michigan basin. An understanding of the controls on sandstone diagenesis, particularly the distribution of authigenic cements, is critical to prediction of the petrologic properties of the St. Peter Sandstone, including formation of porosity.

This study will add to the large body of knowledge of the St. Peter Sandstone already. A detailed investigation of the St. Peter Sandstone of southwestern Wisconsin was undertaken to describe its sedimentologic texture in modern quantitative terminology, to determine its environment of deposition, and to test the available techniques of environmental analysis.
