Abstract

Sulfate minerals, especially gypsum, are present in large quantities in most of the extensive limestone caves of the Mississippian plateaus and outliers of Central Kentucky. Many descriptions of these deposits have been published (Locke, 1842; Weller, 1927; Huff, 1940); however, the origin of the deposits has remained obscure.
