Other epicontinental sea deposits
Some commodities are economically concentrated within both intracratonic basins, and equally miogeoclinal or shelf environments along the margins of major cratonic continents. The sandstone uranium deposits could be included here, but they have such a strong affinity for intracontinental basins that they have accordingly been included in the previous chapter. ‘Epicontinental’ is used here in the sense of including both basins that lie within, as well as those that lie along, the shelf of continental masses.
