The Wilkins Peak Member of the Eocene Green River Formation of southwestern Wyoming contains a series of halite-trona beds deposited in ancestral Lake Gosiute.

X-ray fluorescence analysis of ) salt samples from 10 core holes revealed bromine contents ranging from 11 to ppm. The average concentration, corrected to percent sodium chloride, is approximately 80 ppm. Get this from a library.

The environs do not look desert-like in many places, other than a rich sand deposit called the Killpecker Dunes; owing to the patches of sagebrush and hardy grasses that hide much of the red soil below. The early Eocene Green River Formation represents one of the largest petroleum reserves in the world.

Although this oil shale has figured prominently in the literature for the past century, and has enormous potential to meet global energy requirements, no detailed geochemical characterization of these deposits exists in the context of the rhythmic sedimentary cycles that characterize the.
