Because these springs contain substantial amounts of dissolved chloride, halite and sylvite are found above the water level as evaporitic deposits, along with gypsum. One spring is depositing pyrite that contains significant amounts of arsenic, antimony, and thallium. A yellow compound, composed of arsenic and sulfur, is being deposited in another spring. Arsenic and antimony concentrations are high in the spring waters; the dissolved thallium concentration is not known. The dissolved arsenic appears to be a conservative species and follows chloride. Antimony appears to be independent of dissolved arsenic and to be linearly related to chloride and measured orifice temperature at Morgan Hot Springs.
