The Green River Formation of Wyoming represents a complex sequence of lacustrine, fluvial, and playa strata deposited in and associated with Eocene Lake Gosiute. Detailed mineralogical and organic analysis of 10 cores from the Green River Basin identified correlatable stratigraphic intervals that can be used to interpret the geochemical and sedimentologic history of Lake Gosiute. More than 30 minerals were identified in this study, with graphic correlations and geostatistical evaluations defining 16 major minerals and oil yields, as defined by modified Fischer assay. These relations could be used to define distinct correlatable stratigraphic intervals that, when used in conjunction...
