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.

Ordovician - Cambrian
443.8 - 541 Ma



ID: 2858422
Nolan Belt - Shale, chert, phyllite, quartzite, and limestone

Age: Paleozoic (443.8 - 541 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Broad Canyon Formation; Palmetto Formation; Van Duzer Limestone

Description: Rocks included in this unit have been mapped as the Broad Canyon Formation and Crane Canyon sequence in Lander County (Means, 1962), the Palmetto Formation in Esmeralda and Nye Counties (Ferguson and Cathcart, 1954), the Van Duzer Limestone in northern Elko County (Coats, 1971; Coats, Howard, and Greene, 1984; Decker, 1962; Ehman, 1985), and many other unnamed and locally named rocks. These rocks are strongly deformed, although the nature of the deformation is variable across the belt (Oldow, 1984b) and not well understood regionally. This unit is usually shown both in fault contact with adjacent units Ctd and CZq and gradational with them. Unit Pacl of the Siliciclastic overlap assemblage is shown unconformably deposited on this unit in Wall Canyon of the Toiyabe Range in Nye County. In a few cases, this unit is a stratigraphic continuation from Ctd, but in most places it represents undifferentiated rocks of both Ordovician and Cambrian age that overlap with Ctd, or whose age is poorly constrained.

Lithology: Major:{shale,chert,phyllite}, Minor:{quartzite,limestone}
