Outagamie Co., Wisconsin, USA

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
 
 
Outagamie County bedrock consists of Cambrian and Ordovician sedimentary rocks, primarily Cambrian sandstone in the northwest, and dolostones in the south east. The rocks dip gently to the east, off of the Wisconsin Arch. The dolostones are quarried where exposed and can yield interesting crystals including calcite, quartz, strontianite, dolomite, pyrite and marcasite. Much of the County is covered by glacial sediments, including lake deposits, till, outwash and loess. Occasionally the drift will yield some interesting minerals such as "drift" copper, banded iron formation and "Lake Superior" agates.
