Prospective resources of gypsum and anhydrites in Poland shown on the maps at scale 1 : 200 000.
A b s t r a c t. Areas with the occurrence of prospective resources of anhydrite and gypsum in Poland are shown on nine topographic map sheets at scale 1 : 200 000. The Zechstein (Upper Permian) sulphates (gypsum and anhydrites) exploited in the North Sudetic Synclinorium as well as the Miocene (Neogene) gypsum from the Carpathian Foredeep are of the economic importance. Fifty-one prospective areas were contoured and supplemented with the special information cards. Thirty-three areas of Zechstein sulphates are located in SW Poland and their predicted resources equal 569.94 billion Mg for the total area of about 1568 km2, 10 areas have prognostic resources of 483.50 billion Mg. In the Carpathian Foredeep (southern Poland) 14 prospective areas of gypsum and four areas of anhydrite are contoured. The prospective resources of these Miocene sulphates are 5.76 billion Mg for the total area of about 179 km2, but the prognostic gypsum resources of 11 areas are calculated for 0.46 billion Mg. Total prospective resources of both Zechstein and Miocene sulphates in Poland are estimated at 575.70 billion Mg.
