Abstract

Four small deposits of Wilcox sediments occur in Stewart County, Tennessee. One of these deposits is in the inner depressed ring, or crater, of the Wells Creek Basin structure. It is concluded that these four craters had a common post-Eutaw, pre-Wilcox age and common origin by the impact and resulting explosions of fragments of a meteor. A 2000-foot core drilled in the center of Wells Creek Basin is summarized.
