ODNR Division of Geological Survey Information Circular No. 59, Limestone and Dolomite Availability in the Ohio River Valley for Sulfur Sorbent Use, with Observations on Obtaining Reliable Chemical Analyses, was produced by the Ohio Valley Mineral Consortium, a group consisting of the six state geological surveys bordering the Ohio River—Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Assisted by the aggregate and crushed-stone associations of the region, the consortium compiled information on the availability of high-purity limestone and dolomite and the reliability of chemical analyses of carbonate rocks for potential use in SO2 emission control at coal-fired power plants.
This 16-page report contains maps depicting the distribution of high-purity carbonate rocks in the region, tables showing the status of geologic mapping and carbonate chemical analyses at the state geological surveys, and several photographs of power plants and mineral operations. Information Circular No. 59 was authored by David A. Stith and Thomas M. Berg of the Ohio Survey; Curtis H. Ault and Norman C. Hester of the Indiana Survey; Garland R. Dever, Jr., of the Kentucky Survey; John M. Masters of the Illinois Survey; Samuel W. Berkheiser, Jr., of the Pennsylvania Survey; and Claudette M. Simard of the West Virginia Survey.
