New regional mapping documents that a thick quartzite sequence in the Lemhi subbasin of the Belt-Purcell basin lies near the top of the Mesoproterozoic stratigraphic column, and that two finer-grained units have been miscorrelated. This observation requires reassessment of the subbasin's stratigraphy, which we present here. Determination of the relationships between the stratigraphic units of the Lemhi Range and Salmon River and Beaverhead Mountains and better-known Belt Supergroup units to the north has been hampered by miscorrelation of this upper quartzite sequence with older strata, and by miscorrelation of the type Apple Creek Formation with a similar but stratigraphically lower...
