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
0 - 23.03 Ma



ID: 3185380
Cenozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Cenozoic (0 - 23.03 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]

Middle Devonian - Early Devonian
382.7 - 419.2 Ma



ID: 2780882
Carbonate Shelf Sequence - Dolomite, sandstone, and limestone

Age: Devonian (382.7 - 419.2 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Sevy Dolomite; Nevada Formation; Guilmette Formation; Tor Limestone; McMonnigal Limestone; Simonson Dolomite

Description: Crops out over the same area as unit Dc. Its primary formations are the Sevy Dolomite and the Nevada Formation (now abandoned). In White Pine County, there may be some undivided Guilmette Formation included with unit Dcd. Also included are the Lower Devonian Tor and McMonnigal Limestones in northern Nye County. The Simonson Dolomite is also included here as it is not differentiated in White Pine and Elko Counties. These rocks correspond to depositional sequences 6, 7, and 8 of Cook and Corboy (2004). Unit Dcd is overlain by unit Dc and is depositional on DSc. In White Pine County and most of Elko County, unit DSc is not broken out from unit SOc, hence the Devonian dolomite sequence appears to rest directly on SOc.
