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]

Mississippian
323.2 - 358.9 Ma



ID: 2823737
Meramecian Series

Age: Mississippian (323.2 - 358.9 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: St. Louis Limestone; Salem Formation; Warsaw Formation

Description: St. Louis Limestone, Salem Formation, Warsaw Formation.

Comments: St. Louis Limestone- (100 ft. max) gray massive limestone; Salem FM- (160 ft. max) cross bedded, argillaceous, oolitic limestone; Warsaw FM- (100ft. max) fossilferous limestone. IN CENTRAL MO- St. Louis Limestone is absent. Warsaw FM is host to Mississippi Valley type Pb-Zn deposits, in the Tri-State District, one of the most productive mining districts in the world. The major commodity is zinc, from sphalerite, galena ore. The Jopin area is noted for large calcite scalenohedrons occurring in vugs of the limestone units.
