Lithology description: "Dark coloured, dominantly fine-grained platy limestones with abundant intercalations of shales...The fauna of the platy limestones is characterized by a large proportion of planktic, epiplanktic, and nektic organisms...although benthonic forms are not uncommon...It is postulated that the platy lst facies w/ shales was deposited in a relatively less aerated deeper and calmer environment that was supplied with coarse organodetrital material only during brief intervals..."
