...-basin facies distal from basement highs, platform-edge facies in narrow belts adjacent to highs, and back-reef facies proximal to and within the St. Francois Mountains. A distinct rift-graben facies is characteristic of deposition of these units in the Reelfoot rift. An epeiric sea that extended over...

... are believed to be related to migration of warm basinal fluids from and within the Arkoma and Illinois basins. Because of its hydrologic connection with these two basins, the Reelfoot rift has been postulated as a potential source and/or conduit for one or more of these fluids. Cathodoluminescence petrography...

.... The starved basin was connected to the deep open ocean through a bathymetric depression, which was centered over the failed late Precambrian-Early Cambrian Reelfoot Rift, which extended from the deep-water Ouachita Trough in central Arkansas to southern Illinois, approximately parallel to the trend...

.... Many of these basins have undergone structural readjustment and uplift, some being nearly completely inverted. The oldest of these basins considered here are Mesoproterozoic to Early Cambrian in age. They include the Midcontinent rift, Reelfoot rift, Rough Creek graben, and Rome trough. These basins...

...B. Danielle Cavender; Kevin L. Shelton; James D. Schiffbauer Abstract Mississippi Valley-type (MVT) deposits of the Viburnum Trend are typically lead dominant (Pb/Zn >5) and occur mainly in the reef-grainstone facies of the upper Bonneterre Dolomite (Cambrian). Recent drilling has encountered...

... by the Stuart City reef, is imaged as a pronounced topographic break onlapped by several moundy sediment packages. Because this segment of the line parallels strike, the topographic break may be interpreted as a 2000-m-deep embayment in the Cretaceous shelf-edge, and possibly a major submarine canyon older...

... salinity and metals in a more distal, basinal setting. Late-stage records renewed importance of the HDB. Shift in locus of dolomitizing fluids with time is also suggested. Earlier fluids were channeled along the basal portion of the Bonneterre Dolomite and throughout the “back reef” facies (Figs. 2 , 11...

The Bonneterre Dolomite has been divided into three major lithological facies: a platform edge (reef-grainstone) facies, a restricted platform (back-reef) facies, and an intrashelf basin facies ( Gregg et al., 1993a ). The overlying Davis Formation is composed entirely...

The basin began accumulating sedimentary strata in the late Precambrian to early Cambrian as a result of extension in the Reelfoot rift and Rough Creek graben ( Buschbach and Kolata 1991 ; Kolata and Nelson 1991 , 1997 ).
