    From introduction This report describes large-scale depositional units referred to as architectural elements, interpreted from outcrops of three distinct fluvial sandstone units of the Lakota Formation in the southwestern Black Hills area of Custer and Fall River Counties, South Dakota. These fluvial deposits formed near the end of an episode of continental deposition that began Cited by: Dakota Sandstone (Cenomanian) at surface, covers % of this area Includes Oak Canyon, Cubero, and Paguate Tongues; includes Clay Mesa Tongue of Mancos Shale.

seen in the Paradox Basin to the northwest, while the Black Mesa Basin shows early Paleozoic sediments, similar to those seen in the Grand Canyon to the west.

In fact, the Grand Canyon exposes Proterozoic Chuar Formation sediments that may have source rock potential deposited in an ancient rift basin. The coal-bearing Dakota Sandstone at Coal Canyon, Arizona, in the western portion of the Black Mesa Basin, yielded abundant, diverse, and generally well-preserved spores, pollen and microplankton.

The Dakota Formation is a sedimentary geologic formation composed of sandstone, mudstone, and shale deposited in the late-Early to early-Late Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway. The unit is noted for being exceptionally widespread, producing massive colorful rock formations, and preserving dinosaur footprints and early deciduous tree y: United States, Canada.

History. The Mesaverde Formation was first described by in during the Hayden described the formation in the northern San Juan Basin as consisting of three units, which were a "Lower Escarpment" consisting of 40 m of ledge- and cliff-forming massive sandstone; a "Middle Coal Group" consisting of up to m of thick slope-forming Overlies: Cody Shale, Mancos Shale.

Black Mesa, a remnant of Cretaceous strata in northeastern Arizona, is coincident with, and the namesake for, the Black Mesa Basin. The Mancos Shale of Black Mesa represents a southwestward-extending tongue of the Mancos of the type locality at Mancos, Colorado, and represents only a minor part of the type section (Repenning and Page, ).File Size: 2MB.

Summary: Underlies a broad area along west side of San Juan basin conformably between the Dakota sandstone and the Mesaverde group. Is a thick (2, +/-ft) dark gray to black, easily eroded shale of marine origin with a few thin beds of gray sandstone especially near the top and impure limestone near base.

Tbe upper part is a complex of shales with occasional limestones; middle part is many bands of massive dark-gray limestone, often highly fossiliferous, alternating with sandstones and conglomerates; lower part is greenish-gray sandstones and shales, the latter sometimes nearly black.

Black Mesa marker beds are also from Kirkland (this volume). The southern margin of the basin was influenced by the Mesa Butte fault in northern Arizona.

Its eastern margin was influenced by a north-trending fault on the western flank of Monument uplift. Uplift across the area of the Grand Canyon ended deposition in the marine or lacustrine Chuar basin at about Ma.

San Miguel sediments were deposited in the Maverick Basin within the Rio Grande Embayment. Cross sections and sandstone maps reveal that during deposition of the San Miguel Formation, the Maverick Basin consisted of two subbasins.
