... Abstract The Berriasian-Valanginian Taraises Formation in the subsurface of northeastern Mexico consists of an intercalation of argillaceous limestone and shale. This formation is divided into two members, based on lithologic characteristics defined from electric and radioactivity logs from oil...

... 40 km west of Linares. About 2,000 m of Late Jurassic (Tithonian) to Late Cretaceous (Maestrichtian) rocks are exposed. The Taraises Formation is composed mainly of dark gray to black, well-indurated lime wackestones and mudstones 132 m thick. The upper part of the formation includes 31 m of dark...

The lithology of the La Casita indicates a period of major clastic influx ( Figure 3a ) in northeastern Mexico ( Imlay, 1936 ; Smith, 1981 ; Michalzik, 1988 ). Most of the detrital material is derived from the emerged Coahuila block ( Fortunato, 1982...
