The Helena and Wallace formations, currently of the “middle Belt carbonate”, were deposited in the block–fault Belt basin, within the Proterozoic Columbia continent, which filled from about 1480 to 1400 Ma. Dolomitic argillite–capped cycles of the Helena Formation were thought to represent a marine carbonate shelf deposit along the eastern margin of the Belt basin. Siliciclastic and calcitic rocks of the Wallace Formation were considered to be the western facies of the middle Belt carbonate, deposited in deeper water.
