Natural Salt Contamination in South-central
Two New Industrial Minerals Maps
Another new map shows the locations of abandoned quarries and mines in
Kansas, information that is particularly useful in areas of new development
or construction. The majority of quarries and pits shown on the map are
former limestone or sand and gravel operations, but the map also shows
the location of sandstone, volcanic ash, clay and shale, salt, and chat
quarries and pits.
These color maps, Non-fuel Industrial Minerals of Kansas, 1995,
and Abandoned Non-fuel Mineral Pits and Quarries in Kansas, 1995,
are drawn at a scale of 1:1,000,000 (one inch equals about 15 miles) and
measure about 13 inches by 26 inches. Both maps were compiled by D. A.
Grisafe, J. A. Ross, and D. L. Beene. Copies of either map are available
for $15 plus tax and shipping from the KGS.
Producing Horizons of Oil and Gas: Additional Maps
Producing Horizons of Oil and Gas Fields in the Hugoton Basin, Kansas,
1995 (M-42) combines the Dodge City and Scott City quadrangle maps
from the M-35 Series, to display the oil and gas fields of the Hugoton
Basin on one map. At a map scale of 1:250,000 (one inch equals four miles),
this color map also identifies by name the fields that produce oil and
gas in the Hugoton Basin.
A wall map of Kansas oil and gas fields, Producing Horizons of Oil and Gas Fields in Kansas, 1994 (M-38), uses 10 colors to represent the approximate age of the rocks that are productive in Kansas. Drawn at a scale of 1:500,000 (one inch equals about eight miles) and measuring 26 inches by 52 inches, this new map is a composite of the 12 quadrangle maps in the M-35 Series.
