Abstract

In the Late Permian, dolomite and sand were deposited during Grayburg time, and were followed by anhydrite and halite in early Queen time. Clastic material was added to the evaporites during Queen and Seven Rivers times. During Yates time, 150 feet of sand was spread across the area, followed by evaporite deposition during Tansill time. Regional uplift followed, and 20 feet of Castile(?) shale were deposited. These were followed by more evaporite deposition. Local emergence and erosion followed, and the final transgression of the Permian sea resulted in the deposition of 80 feet of the Rustler Formation, which includes anhydrite, and finally 100 feet of Dewey Lake sand was deposited.
