Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Early Cretaceous - Late Jurassic
100.5 - 163.5 Ma

ID: 2926443
Upper Jurassic-Lower Cretaceous sedimentary and volcanic rocks

Age: Mesozoic (100.5 - 163.5 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Lummi Group; Nooksack Group

Description: Predominantly sedimentary rocks. Graywacke, argillite, and siltstone with some slate and phyllite; includes graywacke breccia and ribbon chert with minor local limestone lenses and basalt flows.

Comments: Dragovich and others, 2002, maps this unit as metamorphosed sandstone, argillite, mudstone, and conglomerate with localized semischist, phyllite, chert, limestone, siltstone, greenstone, diabase, and gabbro. Huntting and others, 1961, originally listed"Leech River Group" in the stratigraphy of this unit; obsolete term and now considered part of Lummi Group (Brandon and others, 1988). Also includes "semischist" (Tabor and others, 1988, Dragovich and others, 2002). Misch, 1966, describes the Nooksack group as phylllitic but composed of graywackes, siltstone, and minor conglomerate.
