1988). Fortunately this carnallite and kieserite leaching usually stopped before most sylvinite deposits were totally depleted. Since the carnallite conversion to sylvite appears to have essentially always occurred, this MgS04 leaching would have been equally inevitable in most potash deposits. Complete magnesium sulfate removal should have usually taken place, and the primary variable would have been the amount of KClleached, thus determining the residual K 20 content of the sylvinite. It should also be remembered that some of the original sea water sulfate had previously been removed by being crystallized with the halite, and some left with the strong magnesium chloride end liquor.

Schwerdtner 1964; Baadsgaard 1987; Wardlaw 1968), many carnallite deposits may have been formed at a later time. The high-MgCl 2 liquor that seeped through the potash bed may have ultimately converted some calcite to dolomite, or gypsum to polyhalite as previously noted, and lost some or all of its sulfate content by precipitation with the CaCI 2 formed by either reaction. Some of this seepage brine could have also remained in the pore space of formations under the potash, but have not reacted with calcite.

LOH 20), and the combined glauber salt, epsomite crystallization can represent a removal of as much as 30-60% of the sulfate originally present. Epsomite has been found in some halite deposits, and kieserite crystals are occasionally present in the halite's liquid inclusions (Fabricius 1983; Petrochenko 1979). Once crystallized neither compound usually totally redissolves even with warmer weather, and thus largely remain with the halite. Consequently, all halite deposits should contain moderate quantities of epsomite, and/or the equivalent amount of calcium sulfate if later converted by dolomite brines.
