LIMESTONE AND MINOR AMOUNTS OF DOLOMITE AND SHALE-Includes units such as Rogers Spring and Monte Cristo Limestones. Lower contact abrupt and placed at top of calcareous quartz sandstone. Between Duttonville and Millville, grades into biohermal and nonbiohermal facies of medium- to coarse-grained limestone of Coeymans Formation of Epstein and others (1967).

Upper part of formation locally consists of light-bluish-gray laminated siltstone containing vugs lined or filled with quartz and scattered throughout the formation are interbeds of medium to greenish-gray shale, shaly limestone and siltstone. Mines Member of Gatesburg Formation - Gray dolomite containing siliceous "oolites" and chert having cryptozoon stromatolites. Stonehenge Limestone - gray, thin-bedded to massive, fossiliferous limestone, largely mechanically deposited, with small black chert nodules and beds of "edgewise" conglomerate. Permian fossils have been found in the topmost beds of the Tensleep at some localities in Washakie Range, Owl Creek Mountains, and southern Bighorn Mountains. The term “flint” is essentially synonymous with chert, but its usage is more restricted, at least in geology where “chert” is preferred. Fort Payne Formation - Bedded chert, calcareous and dolomitic, somewhat crinoidal; and minor shale. The highly resistant Stoufferstown Limestone member is found at the base. (Sumner Group) LAWTON- Maroon shale, about 130 feet (40 m) thick, with greenish-gray and black sandstone of the "Ryan Sandstone Bed" at base. Lower contact unconformable.
