The Misener sandstone is a basal transgressive sandstone developed at the base of the Upper Devonian-Lower Mississippian Chattanooga Shale.Chattanooga shale General relations The Chattanooga shale is a black organic pyritiferous marine shale that is generally, very fine grained and sparsely fossiliferous. It is part of a persistent terrane of black shale deposited over much of the interior of North America during Middle Devonian, Late Devonian, and early Mississippian time. Chattanooga shale consists of two materials, shale and the highly carbonized remains of a floating, aquatic, green plant, Conodontophyta chattanoogae, that now is an extinct, nonpetrified fossil. The remains of this fossil became compressed between layers of finegrained shale. When a piece of shale is struck with a hammer it breaks apart at the ...The Chattanooga Shale is a laterally extensive, easily recognizable black to gray-black shale present in the subsurface throughout most of Kansas (see Goebel, 1968b; Lambert 1992, this volume, for summary of Chattanooga Shale distribution and internal stratigraphy in Kansas).A shale is a sedimentary rock that is composed of small (mostly less than 0.1 mm) particles dominated by phyllosilicate (clay) minerals and containing subordinate amounts of quartz, carbonate, and phosphate minerals and, in some cases, organic matter and pyrite [for a discussion, see Spears (1980)].The Chattanooga Shale of the Newman Ridge syncline lies stratigraphically above the Silurian Hancock Dolomite and below the siltstone and shale of the Mississippian Grainger Formation. Core examination indicates that the Chattanooga is predominately a black shale composed of clay, finely divided carbonaceous material, and quartz. al., 1990). This environment creates an organic-rich shale that is an important source of hydrocarbons throughout the Midcontinent. Geochemical analysis of the Chattanooga shale using various techniques will provide additional information on oil-source rock correlations. This will provide insight on the potential ofIt is a flat-lying, massive, siliceous, pyritic marine black shale, on average about 10 m thick and located at a depth from 30 to 600 m. It unconformably rests upon Leipers Limestone and is overlain by the Maury Formation. The Chattanooga Shale includes three members. selected for detailed study were the Pierre Shale (smectitic), Chattanooga Shale (organic rich), Green River Formation shales (carbonate rich), and the Nolichucky and Pumpkin Valley Shales (illitic).

With its type locality in Tennessee (Hayes, 1891), the Chattanooga Shale also is found in Alabama, Kentucky, Arkansas, and eastern Oklahoma (Cooper, 1931; Conant and Swanson, 1961).The Chattanooga Shale is a geologic formation in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri and Tennessee. It preserves conodont fossils dating to the Devonian Period. It occurs mostly as a subsurface geologic formation composed of layers of shale. It is located in Eastern Tennessee and also extends into southeastern Kentucky, northwestern Georgia, and northern Alabama. This part of Alabama is part of the Black Warrior Basin. The Devonian Chattanooga Shale contains an uppermost black shale interval with dispersed phosphate nodules.
