Abstract

A mineralogical study of the sandstones of the Pennsylvanian of the Ardmore Basin, especially those of the Springer formation, was made in the hope of establishing a foundation: (1) for reliable petrographic correlation; and (2) for securing mineralogical data concerning the source of the sediments. A brief analysis of the petrographic character of the sediments is presented, after which tentative conclusions are drawn as to petrographic correlation of the sandstone members and their probable source.
