Loc. 25 - Permenter's Farm [Jackson Bluff Fm] (Pliocene of the United States)

Where: Walton County, Florida (30.6° N, 86.2° W: paleocoordinates 30.7° N, 85.5° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Jackson Bluff Formation, Late/Upper Pliocene (3.6 - 2.6 Ma)

• LITHOSTRATIGRAPHY: From the Choctawhatchee, which overlies the Shoal River Fm (Middle Miocene) as originally entered; placed here in Jackson Bluff Fm. AGE: Late Miocene, on the basis of macrofossil and microfossils biostratigraphy as originally entered; placed here in Late Pliocene. STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From either the Arca or Ecphora (more likely) zones of the Choctawhatchee Fm (upper part); Smith designated these the Permenter's Farm beds, which comprise 25 ft of fossiliferous gray marl.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; unlithified, gray marl

• ENVIRONMENT: Not discussed in text, but appears to be shallow marine siliciclastic.
• LITHOLOGY: Fossiliferous gray marl. LITHIIFCATION: Unlithified, assumed on the basis of age and facies description, and inspection of other collections from Chochtawhatchee Fm outcrops.

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: original aragonite

Collected by Smith

Collection methods: surface (in situ),

• COLLECTOR: R.H. Smith, c. 1940. REPOSITORY: Probably Florida Geological Survey.
