Description: This unit is present in southern Nye, Lincoln, and Clark Counties. Unit includes the Monte Cristo Limestone, and Lower Mississippian rocks referred to as the Joana, Mercury, Bristol Pass, and Rogers Spring Limestones. It generally lies depositionally above Devonian carbonate rocks and beneath Pennsylvanian carbonate and clastic rocks. In the Meadow Valley Mountains in southern Lincoln County it is also shown sitting on a thin horizon of Pilot Shale and overlain by a thin Mississippian clastic unit assigned to unit IPMcl.
