Paper Abstract

Cyanobactenal mats have been extensively studied during the past decades. There are all reasons to believe that these highly productive systems might have contributed to the formation of deposits of some combustible mineral raw materials. It is generally accepted that stromatolites are nothing but ancient litified mats.
