The main controlling factors of organic matter accumulation in the Upper Ordovician Wufeng–Lower Silurian Longmaxi Formations are complex and remain highly controversial. This study investigates the vertical variation of total organic carbon (TOC) content as well as major...

Outside Publication: Ore Geology Reviews
A genetic deposit model was developed for economic sandstone-hosted uranium deposits that formed in Eocene through Pliocene sandstones in the Texas Coastal Plain. Here 254 uranium occurrences, including 169 deposits, 73 prospects, 6 showings and 4 anomalies, have been identified. About 80 million pounds of U308 have been produced and about 60 million pounds of identified producible U308 remain in place. Uranium is currently being produced from this region, and the deposit model may help identify new mineable deposits.
