Cape Fear Formation, South Carolina Coastal Plain (16)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

16 Rock Mineralogy:

Gohn and others (1977) described sediment samples of the Cape Fear Formation derived from a well near Charleston. Their analysis of the sands (their figure 4) indicates that the sands are immature and contain between 2- and 35-percent feldspar.
