Summary:

Is the first published paper to use Calls Fort shale member as a member of Bloomington formation. Original designation as a member is attributed to Denson, 1942, Ph. D. Thesis. A section was measured from east of Calls Fort monument in SE1/4 sec 14, T10N, R2W, to second spur to north on north side of Precipice Canyon, Box Elder Co., UT on the Wasatch uplift. Is recognized in the Bear River Range on the Wasatch uplift and in the Wasatch Range in the Great Basin province. Consists of 200 ft of gray, calcareous shale and gray limestone in the Calls Fort section. Overlies and underlies an unnamed part of the Bloomington formation. Is of Middle Cambrian age.
