... Formation and the overlying Goodwin Formation, the lowest of the three formations of the Pogonip Group (Figure 3 ), is sharp and, in most places, is expressed by an oxidized zone in mid-platform to craton-margin sections. In platform-margin sections in the Talc City Hills (C, Figure 1 ) and Mazourka...

... deformations are common. Floating quartz sand grains occur throughout the formation but are usually concentrated near the top. Carbonate sand grains are associated with the quartz grains. The lithogenic unit is remarkable in being recognizable through an area of 100,000 square miles in California, Nevada, Utah...

... and Law also interpret the Pennsylvanian rocks of the Keeler Canyon Formation that occur as pendants in the southwestern part of the Santa Rita Flat pluton as part of a domal antiform that developed by forceful expansion above the pluton as it was emplaced. All previous mapping ( Ross, 1965 ; Johnson...

... (1956 , chart 1; Ross, R. J., Jr., 1964, p. C12). Pestana (1960 , p. 864) considered the quartzose Johnson Spring Formation of the Mazourka Canyon area to be Trenton in age. If he was correct and if the upper part of the Eureka is of Wilderness age in the Arrow Canyon Range, one can only conclude...
