Summary:

Rank reduced to Logana Member of Lexington Limestone. Underlain by Curdsville Limestone Member, overlain by Grier Limestone Member. Thin- to thick-bedded, gray, fine- to medium-grained limestone with interbedded shale in upper and lower parts. Most of limestone is brachiopodal. 17-24 ft thick.

Summary:

Nomenclature of the Lexington in this report follows Stith (1986: OH Rept. Inv. 132) who extended the Curdsville and Logana Members to OH. Upper Lexington is undifferentiated and gradationally underlies Point Pleasant Formation in southwestern OH.

Summary:

The Logana Member of the Lexington Limestone in KY consists of interbedded dark, argillaceous calcisiltite and brownish gray, calcareous and dolomitic shale. Unit is generally unfossiliferous, but a few beds contain mollusks and brachiopods. Thickness is 50 feet in central KY and thins to the south. Overlies the Curdsville Limestone Member and underlies the Grier Limestone Member, both of the Lexington Limestone. The environment of deposition is interpreted to be deeper, quiet water with poor oxygenation.
