Core descriptions, thin-section analyses, and X-ray powder diffraction analyses of whole-rock samples and clay-sized fractions were employed to interpret the sedimentology and mineralogy of synimpact Exmore beds and the overlying Chickahominy Formation. This study attempts to explain the origin and postdepositional alteration of materials in the Eyreville core from the central zone of the Chesapeake Bay impact crater. Samples were obtained from eight zones extending from core depths of 435 to 1471 m, with emphasis on the interval from 435 to 455 m, representing the upper Exmore beds and the lower Chickahominy Formation. Qualitative clay mineral determinations were aided by...
