Hornfels - Mining Fundamentals

Hornfels - Mining Fundamentals. Hornfels are a type of metamorphic rock, having a dense, compact, and fine grained structure. The formation of these rocks is the result of contact metamorphism of shales and basalts. In some type of hornfels, distinctive rounded patches, composed of coarse-crystalline material, are seen; these are called spotted ...

limestone sandstone shale

Mudstone/Shale vs. Limestone - University of Pittsburgh. This mudstone contains irregular hard blobs called nodules or concretions. When broken open, they reveal fine-grained textures. When a drop of acid is applied, they fizz. Thus, these are limestone nodules. Shales and mudstones quickly weather to create gentle slopes.
