A general survey of the geology of the Wichita Mountains is presented here as a means of broadening the geologic background for structural and stratigraphic interpretations in subsurface studies of southern Oklahoma. Detailed descriptions of the common Precambrian igneous rocks, along with measured sections and important faunal markers of Upper Cambrian and Lower Ordovician strata, are taken partly from published sources and partly from unpublished studies by the writers. New mapping of the conglomerates in the eastern part of the region by Chase shows clearly that they are part of the Wichita formation of early Permian age, thus indicating the date of the latest significant orogenic movement in the Wichita Mountains.
