.... Abstract The CretaceousTertiary boundary (KTB) sequences along the Brazos River, Texas, U.S.A., have been controversial for over two decades. At issue is whether the KTB and the mass extinction should be placed at the base of a sandstone complex based on the presence of Chicxulub impact spherules...

...M. A. Carrigy; G. B. Mellon Abstract Kaolinite, illite, chlorite, and montmorillonite are authigenic void-filling cements in deeply buried folded sandstone where, with quartz and zeolites, they form assemblages of authigenic silicates that are related to the bulk composition of the sandstones...
