      PERMIAN SALT DEPOSITS OF THE SOUTH-CENTRAL UNITED STATES. By N. H. DARTON. INTRODUCTION. During the last few years extensive drilling for oil, gas, and water has revealed a vast deposit of salt constituting part of the Permian succession in eastern New Mexico and northwestern Texas and Okla­ : N.H. Darton. Saline Valley Salt Works During World War I, nearly pure salt was extracted from the salt lake in the Saline Valley. Test shafts indicated a layer of salt as least 30 feet thick beneath the lake. To deliver the salt to a convenient point for shipping it was loaded on a specially constructed salt tram. - - -.

        The suggestion is that the angiosperms, gymnosperms and insects of the Saline Series may represent a highly evolved Cambrian or Precambrian flora and fauna! In other words, it is suggested that these plants and animals made their appearance in the Salt Range area several hundred million years earlier than they did anywhere else in the : Red Wheel/Weiser.

Water with a C1 content in the mg 1 -I range is defined as brackish whereas that in the mg range is classified as saline. Brine is water whose CI concentration exceeds the world average concentration of C1 in ocean water (19 mg 1 i; Hem, ).

Formation. The Salt Range Thrust separates the Infra-Cambrian from Proterozoic rocks, and deposits ranging in age from Infra-Cambrian to Recent are present in the Salt Range.

The age of the Salt Range Formation in the Salt Range Mountains of Pakistan was a matter of extreme controversy among geologists from the middle nineteenth century to the middle twentieth century.

Of great importance in the later discussions were fragments of advanced plants and insects discovered in the Salt Range Formation by researchers such.

The Salt Range and its Trans-Indus extension bridges the reentrant between the outer ranges of the northwestern Himalaya and the Sulaiman Mountain arc.

Upper Proterozoic to Recent successions occur in the range, which makes up the southern thrust front of the orogen. There are two regional features of particular interest. The Salt Range in the Punjab province of Pakistan is located on the southern margin of the Potwar Plateau and continues westward in the Surghar Range, west of the Indus river.

Cumulative thickness of Cambrian salts was found to reach – m, with predominance of 1- to 9-m salt layers. In the Cambrian, the study area was a shallow warm basin of sabkha type and favored salt evaporation.

Introduction of Salt Range The Salt Range contains the most important geologic and paleontological localities in Pakistan and is one of the outstanding field areas in the entire world. In fact, it represents an open book of geology where various richly fossiliferous stratified rocks are very well exposed due to lack of vegetation.The Salt Range (Punjabi: سلسلہ کوہ نمک) is a hill system in the Punjab province of Pakistan, deriving its name from its extensive deposits of rock salt.

The range extends along the south of the Pothohar Plateau and the North of the Jhelum Salt Range contains the great mines of Khewra, Kalabagh and Warcha which yield vast supplies of t route: M2 motorway (Pakistan).Cambrian Sedimentary Deposits - The Sauk Sequence and a series of coral reefs the region evaporates the sea water and concentrates the salt.
