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.

Quaternary - Miocene

ID: 3185380
Cenozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Cenozoic (0 - 23.03 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary rocks

Late Devonian - Middle Devonian
358.9 - 393.3 Ma



ID: 2858264
Carbonate Shelf Sequence - Limestone and minor dolomite

Age: Devonian (358.9 - 393.3 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Devils Gate Limestone; Guilmette Formation; Sultan Limestone

Description: Includes generally cliff-forming, thin- to thick-bedded limestone. These rocks are mainly shallow water subtidal, intertidal, and supratidal deposits formed on a broad inner carbonate shelf (Stewart, 1980). The Devils Gate Limestone and Guilmette Formation in northern Nevada are the principal units, and the Sultan Limestone is included from the southern part of the State. Unit is overlain (usually disconformably) by the Pilot Shale of unit MDcl except in southernmost Nevada where it is overlain by Mississippian carbonate (Mc). It depositionally overlies Middle and Lower Devonian unit Dcd. In a few places, such as southern Nevada and parts of Eureka County, regional mapping did not distinguish the Upper and Middle Devonian section from the Lower Devonian section, and all of the Devonian is included in unit Dc. Rocks mapped as the Simonson Dolomite would fit into this depositional sequence (sequences 9 and 10 of Cook and Corboy, 2004), but they are not differentiated from the underlying dolomites in White Pine or Elko Counties, so they are all included in unit Dcd here, not unit Dc. This unit crops out in Clark, Elko, Eureka, Lander, Lincoln, Nye, and White Pine Counties.
