Abstract

The concentrations and distribution of uranium and boron have been measured in dolomites and limestones from a core taken on the island of San Salvador in the Bahamas. The analyses reveal a wide range of concentrations both within and between the two predominant types of dolomite. The crystalline dolomites show unexpectedly high concentrations of U in skeletal components (2 to 7 ppm), but low values in void-filling cements (0.5 to 1 ppm). In contrast, the fabric-destructive microsucrosic dolomites are uniformly low in U (0.5 to 1 ppm) with occasional red algal fragments exhibiting concentrations as high as 1.5 ppm. -from Author
