A quarry for building stone in the Lockport Dolomite and Greenfield Dolomite. The quarry is located in section 11, SW ¼ in Perrysburg Township. Most of the quarry is now flooded (beginning in 2010) and abandoned.

In 2003, Stoneco was acquired by Oldcastle Materials Inc., and Stoneco's Ohio quarries became part of the Shelly Company. Ernest Carlson (2015) lists this locality as the Shelly Materials Inc., Lime City Quarry (formerly Stoneco and Maumee Stone Co.).

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.

Paleozoic
251.902 - 541 Ma



ID: 3187973
Paleozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Phanerozoic (251.902 - 541 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary rocks

Reference: Chorlton, L.B. Generalized geology of the world: bedrock domains and major faults in GIS format: a small-scale world geology map with an extended geological attribute database. doi: 10.4095/223767. Geological Survey of Canada, Open File 5529. [154]

Wenlock - Llandovery
427.4 - 443.8 Ma



ID: 2950656
Tymochtee and Greenfield Formations, Undivided

Age: Silurian (427.4 - 443.8 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Tymochtee Formation; Greenfield Formation

Description: Dolomite, olive-gray to yellowish- brown, thin to massive bedded, upper two-thirds commonly contains brownish-black to gray shale laminae; locally developed brecciated zones in lower one third.

Comments: Secondary unit description from USGS Lexicon website (ref. OH017) and OH005:Rock units forming the bedrock in the Maumee, Lucas Co., OH, and that crop out in the walls of a quarry are the Lockport Dolomite and the Greenfield Dolomite. The two form a thick reef complex roughly 600 m in diameter and about 68 m thick. The Lockport contains multistory stromatolite, thrombolite, and coral-microbialite reefs that were probably formed in a subtidal setting within a hypersaline lagoon. Lockport may be Wenlockian or Llandoverian to Ludlovian. In contrast to the mostly massive Lockport, the Greenfield at Maumee quarry is well bedded. It is Wenlockian, according to Shaver (1991), but fig. 16 of this report (after Howell, 1993) depicts the Greenfield as Llandoverian with a significant hiatus between deposition of the two units (Kahle, 1994).
