Summary:The mineralogy and burial history of five cores from conventional biogenic methane reservoirs in North-central Montana are described and illustrated. The postdepositional alterations that have significantly affected gas-reservoir quality are outlined and related to the shallow burial history of the rocks. Source areas for the sediments are discussed.—from the New Publications of the Geological Survey, December 1981. [K.A.R.]
