Grain size analysis and mineralogy of the Tremadocian Dictyonema shale
86) During the implementation of the Soviet uranium project, a top secret uranium factory (Kombinat No 7) was erected in Sillamae, and a test facility, officially called paint factory (krassilnaja fabrika), was established in Narva to test and develop the technology of extracting uranium from the Dictyonema shale
found in north-eastern Estonia (the average uranium content of Dictyonema shale
The target was composed of the stratified sedimentary cover comprising (from the top) bedded Upper and Middle Ordovician limestone (up to 20 m thick), Lower Ordovician Dictyonema shale
(argillite with an admixture of organic matter, about 2 m thick), and an up to 200 m thick layer of Lower Ordovician to uppermost Vendian sand, silt, and some clay, which covered the Precambrian basement consisting of granites, gneisses, amphibolites, and other crystalline rocks.
In the world OS overviews, the Estonian kukersite and Dictyonema shale
reserves are assessed on the basis of their energetic value.
The name was applied to a transition between the Dictyonema Shale
(with many interbeds of quartzose sandstone in the lower part) of the Turisalu Formation and the Obolus Sandstone represented in NE Estonia.

On the distribution of graptolites in the Dictyonema shale

One sample comes from the Tremadocian graptolite-argillite, the Dictyonema shale

Estonian argillites have for a long time been known as Dictyonema shale
, and the appearance of the first planktic graptolite Dictyonema flabelliforme (now Rhabdinopora flabelliformis) was taken as the local base of the Ordovician system.
