General Description

This is a three day fieldtrip in the Buffalo National River area. The theme of this workshop is Karst – Old and New. The "old karst" is a reference to paleokarst at the contact of the St. Peter and Everton Formations and paleokarst breccias that host the lead and zinc mineralization. The "new karst" pertains to recent karst features and landforms in the area such as springs and sinkholes. The first day we will look at the historic Rush Mining District. The second day will feature a geologic float trip on the lower end of the Buffalo National River while the third day focuses on karst features along the Indian Rockhouse Trail at Buffalo Point. The following frameworks in Earth and Space Sciences will be addressed.
