Abstract

This paper gives a brief description of the facies and diagenetic history of the Bonneterre Formation (Cambrian) of southeastern Missouri and some of the latest ideas concerning the origin of the Bonneterre lithologies and their relationship to mineralization. A large part of this paper is an update of an earlier paper by the authors (Gerdemann and Gregg, 1986) with additional unpublished material. Much of the new information is based on preliminary studies conducted by the authors at the St. Joe Minerals Corporation Geological Research Laboratory in Viburnum, MO between its establishment in 1982 and the sale of the company in 1986. The purpose here is to encourage further research on sediment hosted Mississippi Valley-type (MVT) ore deposits of southeastern Missouri and elsewhere.
