Abstract

This outcrop of Pennsylvanian and Permian rocks is along the east side of Nebraska 105 about 3 mi (5 km)south of Humboldt in Richardson County, Nebraska. It is located in the SW¼ Sec. 22 and NW¼ Sec. 27, T.2N., R.13E., as shown in Fig. 1, which reproduces a small part of the Humboldt SW 7½-minute Quadrangle. The rocks are exposed on public right-of-way in the road ditch eastof the highway and are easily accessible by foot.

Here is a good exposure of the contact between the Pennsylvanian and Permian rocks and also one of the best localities in Nebraska to observe steeply dippingrocks associated with the Humboldt Fault Zone. The exposure here is approximately 170 ft (51.8 m) thick. The dip is 17°E.
