323.2 - 358.9 Ma
|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.
