• coordinate based on nearby landmark
When: Carboniferous (358.9 - 298.9 Ma)
• Possible range in age for this member is from mid-Namurian to early late-Namurian based on spore content.
Collection methods: The entire formation consists of a succession of mudstones, siltstones, and thin sandstones whcih constitutes a broadly coarsening upwards fluvially dominated deltaic sequence. General thickness is 600m.
