Abstract

In the past few years intensive studies have been going on concerning Cambrian formations as a locale for orebodies. Many of the dolomites and limestones of southwestern Montana are susceptible to replacement by mineralizing solutions, especially when overlain by a rather impervious layer of shale, as is the Pilgrim limestone of Upper Cambrian time.
