Fauna j, Section AV2, Delorme Fm., Mackenzie Mts. (Silurian of Canada)

Where: Northwest Territories, Canada (62.4° N, 127.0° W: paleocoordinates 4.7° N, 49.3° W)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Kockelella patula zone, Delorme Formation, Whitwellian (430.5 - 425.4 Ma)

• Zonation based on conodonts present in AV sections 1, 2, and 4. (AV 3 and DR sections correlated with these on basis of trilobite faunal assemblages.)

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: slope; argillaceous limestone and shale

• Grand Cycle 3, middle part.

•SEP environmental call based on given information

• "...sequence of buff and light brown weathering, thinly bedded limestones, dolomites and shales that overlie the Whittaker Formation and underlie the Camsell Formation...The beds above and including a distinctive buff-brown shale unit in the sections near Avalanche Lake are included in the Delorme Formation in this work, although the lowest buff-brown shaly beds (below distinctive orange coloured limestones and dolomites) could be regarded as transitional between the Road River and Delorme..."

Preservation: replaced with silica
