Origin of the bedding replacement deposits of fluorspar in ...

The banded fluorspar deposits of the Cave In Rock district are attributed to replacement of limestone and the preservation of bedding and cross-bedding of the rock. The solutions contained hydrofluoric acid which reacted with CaCO 3 . The replacement was stoichiometrical, with consequent reduction of volume, but continued deposition of calcium fluoride, brought in from other points, partly or ...

Numerous studies of these deposits have been made including those by Ulrich and Smith (1905), Fohs (1907), Stuart Weller (1920a, 1921a, 1923, 1927a), Currier (1920, 1923), and Bastin (1931, 1939). In 1937 Kentucky produced 87,296 tons of the various grades of fluorspar with a total value of $1,710,122, an average of $19.59 per ton.
