Origins of Dolomite in the Offshore Facies of the Bonneterre Formation (Cambrian), Southeast Missouri
Describes dolomitized algal bioherms and associated shelf carbonates that were deposited around the Precambrian St. Francois Mountains, which were islands during Late Cambrian time. West of the dolomitized shelf carbonates, the offshore facies of the Bonneterre consists of a deeper water limestone and shale sequence composed of oolitic and skeletal wackestones and packstones interbedded with silty lime mudstones and green illitic shales.
