Cenozoic volcanic rocks form the surface of the Wet Beaver Creek Experimental Drainage Basin. These rocks which emanate from the Beaver Creek area have been correlated with and considered to be a part of the Hickey Formation. Evidence gained through recent studies within the area indicates, however, that the Hickey Formation was deposited and partially eroded prior to the deposition of the Verde Lake beds, and that the volcanics of the Beaver Creek Drainage Basin intertongue with and lie above the Verde Formation. The purpose of this report is to summarize the findings of the previous reports and to name and define the volcanic unit of the Beaver Creek Drainage Basin as a separate and distinct formation.
