ID: 2792111
Lower Pope Group (Aux Vases Sandstone through Glen Dean Limestone)

Age: Mississippian (330.9 - 346.7 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Renault Limestone; Yankeetown Sandstone; Paoli Limestone; Downeys Bluff Limestone; Bethel Sandstone; Paint Creek Formation; Ridenhower Formation; Cypress Sandstone; Beech Creek Limestone; Golconda Formation; Hardinsburg Sandstone

Description: According to the stratigraphic column, the Pope Group only occurs in southern Illinois (south of 40 degrees north latitude). The lower part of the Pope Group is comprised, from oldest to youngest, of the Aux Vases Sandstone (0-160’), Renault Limestone (0-40’) and Yankeetown Sandstone (0-105’) [which together are equivalent to the Paoli Limestone (0-120’, includes the Levias Ls, “Lower Renault”, Shetlerville Ls, and “Benoist”)], Downeys Bluff Limestone (includes “Upper Renault”), Bethel Sandstone (0-110’), Paint Creek Formation (0-150’) and equivalent Ridenhower Formation (0-150’, includes “Paint Creek sand” and Sample Ss), Cypress Sandstone (0-200’, includes “Weiler/Kirkwood”), Beech Creek Limestone (0-40’, includes “Barlow”), Golconda Formation (0-180’, includes Big Clifty Ss – “Jackson sand”, Fraileys Sh, and Haney Ls – “Golconda lime”), Hardinsburg Sandstone (0-180’), and Glen Dean Limestone (0-110’).
