Secondary porosity in Miocene Stevens sandstones of the North Coles Levee Field results from dissolution of calcite, ferroan dolomite, and calcic plagioclase (An30). Kaolinite is a leach product of plagioclase, and mass balance calculations indicate that alumina is conserved on a thin-section scale. Iron released from dissolution of Fe-carbonate is possibly conserved in late-stage pyrite.

Detrital K-feldspar and early formed albite fracture filling in plagioclase are unaffected by the leach fluids, suggesting that these components are stable with respect to the leach fluids, whereas the anor-thite component is unstable.

Thermodynamic considerations indicate present-day pore waters at 100°C, 260 bars...
