The talc deposits occur in dolomitic portions of an ancient pre-Cambrian formation (Cohutta schist) which was intruded by and included in a coarse-grained biotite granite (Fort Mountain gneiss) of pre-Cambrian age. eastward to the Murphy marble belt.

AbstractThe Neoproterozoic Jiangnan orogenic belt delineates the suture zone between the Cathaysia and Yangtze blocks of the South China Craton. The western part of the belt, in the Longsheng region, consists of a disrupted mafic-ultramafic assemblage of pillow basalt, gabbro, diabase, and peridotite along with siliceous marble, ophicalcite, and jasper mixed with basalt. Talc is formed by two processes. In the first process, heated waters carrying magnesium and silica in solution react with and replace beds of dolomitic marble. Examples are the large talc deposits of southwestern Montana that formed by the replacement of marble. This talc may have formed more th an 1 billion years ago. In these deposits, the m.

The talc used by this cosmetic company that manufactured and distributed the talcum powder was from three distinct regions: the Willow Creek mine in Southwest Montana, the Regal mine near Murphy, North Carolina, and imported talc from the Val Chisone region of the Italian Piedmont.
11 – 16 The specific geology of talc is an important. Talc is a common metamorphic mineral in metamorphic belts that contain ultramafic rocks, such as soapstone (a high-talc rock), and within whiteschist and blueschist metamorphic examples of whiteschists include the Franciscan Metamorphic Belt of the western United States, the western European Alps especially in Italy, certain areas of the Musgrave.
State is the leading producer because of its large deposits in St. Lawrence County (Loomis, ). North Carolina has several large deposits of its own. They are found in a northwestern belt along the mountains, the Murphy marble belt, and a southwestern belt (Lamey, ).
There are some health issues related to talc. The Orange County deposit contains andalusite in addition to pyrophyllite. Other pyrophyllite deposts in the slate belt have been mined and prospected and may provide additional reserves.
Talc deposits are associated with the white, siliceous, dolomitic Murphy Marble in Cherokee and Swain counties. ref:deposit:: van horn, e.c.,talc deposits of the murphy marble belt (north carolina): north carolina div. mineral resources bull. 56, 54 p Talc occurs as massive, economic deposits in upper amphibolite facies marbles of Archean age in southwestern Montana.
Previous workers have demonstrated that the talc is a replacement of the marble that resulted from interaction with a large volume of fluid. δ 18 O (SMOW) values for dolomite and calcite range from 20–25‰ for the unaltered Archean marbles to as little as. Random books from geomuseum's library.

Unlike granite and marble, talc exists in ore form and therefore must be processed before pure talc may be produced (Orton, ). Talc in Vermont occurs as metasomatically altered serpentine bodies with a talc content of percent surrounded by a 20 foot rim of high talc .The Murphy marble belt extends some 35 miles in North Carolina from Wesser to the Georgia state line, including parts of Swain, Macon, and Cherokee Counties.
