Dating quartz veins
Rocks with greater than 50% clay matrix are called sandy mudstones, and will be discussed in the lecture on mudrocks.
As the percentage of quartz increases, the mineralogical maturity of arenites increases.
Classification For this course we will use a classification of sandstones that is partially based on Blatt and Tracey (p. If the rock has between 10 and 50% clay matrix, the rock is called a wacke.
Meanwhile, ESR dates of quartz vein and fault clay in other localities (locations 3, 6, 7) are divided into 0.30-0.55 Ma and 1.5 -2.0 Ma, which suggest incomplete resetting.

L.)and Minobu Fault in the western South Fossa Magna have been obtained by ESR dating.
Sandstones Sandstones make up only about 25% of the stratigraphic record, but have received the most attention in studies of sedimentary rocks. First, sandstones are easily studied because they contain sand sized grains that can easily be distinguished with a petrographic microscope.
Second, most of the world's oil and natural gas is found in sands or sandstones because of their generally high porosity.
