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).

Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Paleozoic
251.902 - 541 Ma



ID: 3187973
Paleozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Phanerozoic (251.902 - 541 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary rocks

ID: 2823737
Meramecian Series

Age: Mississippian (323.2 - 358.9 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: St. Louis Limestone; Salem Formation; Warsaw Formation

Description: St. Louis Limestone, Salem Formation, Warsaw Formation.

Comments: St. Louis Limestone- (100 ft. max) gray massive limestone; Salem FM- (160 ft. max) cross bedded, argillaceous, oolitic limestone; Warsaw FM- (100ft. max) fossilferous limestone. IN CENTRAL MO- St. Louis Limestone is absent. Warsaw FM is host to Mississippi Valley type Pb-Zn deposits, in the Tri-State District, one of the most productive mining districts in the world. The major commodity is zinc, from sphalerite, galena ore. The Jopin area is noted for large calcite scalenohedrons occurring in vugs of the limestone units.
