ID: 2841315
Wasatch Formation

Age: Eocene (33.9 - 56 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Wasatch Formation

Description: (Thrust Belt) Main body--Variegated red to gray, brown, and gray mudstone and sandstone; conglomeratic lenses. (in southwest Wyoming) - Drab to variegated claystone and siltstone, carbonaceous shale and coal, buff sandstone, arkose, and conglomerate. In northwestern part of Green River Basin is thick arkosic light-yellowish-tan sandstone intertonguing with pale-green to gray claystone and shale. (in east Wyoming) - Drab sandstone and drab to variegated claystone; numerous coal beds in lower part.
