Stratigraphic Name: Breathitt Formation; Livingston Conglomerate Member

Description: lower part which includes Livingston Conglomerate Member of Lee Formation in eastern Rockcastle County

Comments: along and south of Pine Mountain; thickness is 625-800 m; in south-central Kentucky, thickness is at least 500+ m; in northeastern Kentucky, thickness is 50-300+ m; in east-central Kentucky, thickness is 225-415 m

323.2 - 358.9 Ma

ID: 1912719
Bangor Limestone and Hartselle Formation

Age: Mississippian (323.2 - 358.9 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Bangor Limestone; Hartselle Formation

Description: Bangor Limestone Limestone, dark- to medium-gray, very fine to coarse-grained, mostly medium-grained; in part argillaceous and arenaceous bioclastic calcarenite. Lower part thick bedded, grading upward to thinner beds with thin clay shale partings along bedding planes. Brachiopods and bryozoans abundant, particularly in upper part. May be stratigraphically equivalent to the Glen Dean Limestone of western Kentucky. Partly exposed on wooded hillsides and well exposed in artificial cuts as in highway cut at the village of Sloans Valley. Basal contact sharp. Mapped with underlying Hartselle Formation. \nHarselle Formation: Shale and sandstone: Shale, greenish-gray to bluish-green, thinly and evenly bedded; in part calcareous; clayey, plastic when wet. Sandstone, quartzose, greenish-gray to olive-green, very fine to fine-grained, in very thin even to wavy beds; locally makes up basal part of formation, mostly in southwestern part of quadrangle. An excellent exposure of basal sandstone is west of South Fork near southwest corner of quadrangle. Basal contact sharp; poorly exposed at a narrow topographic bench formed on the Monteagle Limestone; well exposed in quarry south of Tateville and in highway cuts between quarry and Sloans Valley.
