Quaternary - Miocene
0 - 23.03 Ma



ID: 3185380
Cenozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Cenozoic (0 - 23.03 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary rocks

Reference: Chorlton, L.B. Generalized geology of the world: bedrock domains and major faults in GIS format: a small-scale world geology map with an extended geological attribute database. doi: 10.4095/223767. Geological Survey of Canada, Open File 5529. [154]

Pleistocene
0.0117 - 2.588 Ma



ID: 3341320
Older fan deposits

Age: Pleistocene (0.0117 - 2.588 Ma)

Description: Semi-consolidated, poorly sorted alluvial deposits of sand and gravel forming large fans bordering upland areas. Deposits, several tens of meters thick, are crudely stratified parallel to the sloping fan surface, and commonly are deeply dissected. Older fan deposits lower than the Bonneville shoreline in many places were reworked by wave action and marked by strand lines. Locally include coarse-and fine-grained deposits of Lake Bonneville, pediment gravels, colluvium and older alluvium (Qoa). Include talus deposits in the Sheeprock Mountains and wave-worked talus deposits surrounding Crater Bench. In northeast corner of map area include loess, alluvium and colluvium, pre-Wisconsin (glaciation) soil, and landslides (Goode, 1961), and east of Eureka include old stream terrace gravels (Morris and Lovering, 1979).
