Three glauconite-rich arkose concretions have been found in glacial drift at Bellingham, Washington.

No Tertiary marine sediments have been recognized in the source area for this glacial material, but these concretions provide evidence of as yet undiscovered Oligocene strata in the vicinity of the British Columbia – northwest Washington border.
