ID: 2898060
Ste. Genevieve Limestone

Age: Mississippian (330.9 - 346.7 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Fredonia Limestone Member; Spar Mountain Sandstone Member; Rosiclare Sandstone Member; Karnak Limestone Member

Description: Thickness from stratigraphic columns: Ste. Genevieve Ls (0-400’) in southern Illinois (south of 40 degrees north latitude); Ste. Genevieve Ls (0-80’) in northern Illinois (north of 40 degrees north latitude). Ste. Genevieve Limestone includes, from oldest to youngest, Fredonia Ls Mbr - “McClosky”, Spar Mountain Ss Mbr - “Rosiclare” Ss Mbr, Karnak Ls Mbr - “Ohara”, and “Aux Vases lime” in southern Illinois. The Ste. Genevieve Limestone is the uppermost formation of the Mammoth Cave Group. [The 'Mbr' designators were derived from Geolex IL005 reference.][Oil well drillers' terms shown in quotation marks.]
