Fox Hills, Lower Hell Creek, Powder River Basin (13)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

13 Rock/Water Reaction:

Data on rock/water reaction were provided by Henderson (1985). These data are in tabular form and in Stiff diagrams, indicating that coalification processes along the Lance-Fox Hills contact may provide preexisting influxes of CO2 in the basin. Complex mineralogy, including plagioclase and interbedded coal and suggesting the potential for mineral reaction with high CO2 brines, is moderate to high.
