This is a catch-all locality for which no further locality information is available. The Joplin Field consists of the Mississipi type lead-zinc deposits in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri. Not to be confused with the Mississipi lead-zinc mines in the Viburnum Trend in Missouri (https://www.mindat.org/loc-296167.html?cacheclear=1).
