|Middle Miocene to Oligocene sedimentary rocks|
Age: Cenozoic (7.246 - 33.9 Ma)
Description: Con-glomerate, sandstone, mudstone, limestone, and rock-avalanche breccia (sheet-like deposits of crushed rock) deposited and tilted during widespread normal faulting and basin development. Sediments, mostly conglomerate and sandstone, are commonly medium to dark brown, reddish brown, or brownish gray; younger strata are generally lighter colors. Most deposits are 20 to 30 Ma in southeastern Arizona and 15 to 25 Ma in central and western Arizona. (11-32 Ma)
Comments: Middle Tertiary syntectonic or synextensional sucpracrustal rocks
