Thickness 481 feet at type section. Correlated with Pinyon Peak limestone. Overlies Gilson dolomite (new), basal contact placed at lowest quartzite above gray dolomite (Gilson); underlies Madison limestone equivalent, upper contact placed at top of thick massive quartzite. Fossiliferous (brachiopods, pelecypods, gastropods). Age is Late Devonian. Report includes geologic map.
