Evaporites punch well above their weight

In terms of total mass in sedimentary basins, the proportion of evaporite across the world’s Phanerozoic basins is rarely more than 2%. Today we have comprehensive documentation that salt horizons, their brines, associated dissolution and alteration conduits control significant economic associations of oil, gas and metals in volumes well above that expected from its inherently low levels in the Earth's lithosphere (Warren, 2016).
