Quaternary
0 - 2.588 Ma



ID: 2078220
Glacial and alluvial deposits

Age: Pleistocene (0 - 2.588 Ma)

Description: continental glacial till, glacial flood deposits, modern alluvium

Lithology: Sand, gravel

Pleistocene
0.0117 - 2.588 Ma



ID: 1421685
glaciolacustrine deposits, Fraser-age; mostly Vashon Stade in western WA; unnamed in eastern WA

Age: Pleistocene (0.0117 - 2.588 Ma)

Lithology: Sand,silt,mud

Middle Ordovician - Early Ordovician
458.4 - 485.4 Ma



ID: 2924342
Ordovician rocks

Age: Ordovician (458.4 - 485.4 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Ledbetter Slate

Description: Mainly black to gray slate or slaty argillite, argillite, black to dark-gray siltstone in north-central Stevens County and grayish olive-green silty argillite in west-central Stevens County. Many occurrences of Early and Middle Ordovician graptolites; also rare conodonts.

Comments: Ledbetter Slate is 1200 m. thick in Nespelem Quadrangle, west Stevens County (Joseph, 1990b). Mission argillite (in part): Stoffel and others, 1991, report that while the term "Mission argillite" was once widely used, it has since been abandoned.
