NUGGET SANDSTONE, ANKAREH FORMATION, THAYNES LIMESTONE, WOODSIDE SHALE, and DINWOODY FORMATION (Thrust Belt). NUGGET SANDSTONE--Buff to pink crossbedded well-sized and well-sorted quartz sandstone and quartzite; locally has oil and copper-silver-zinc mineralization. ANKAREH FORMATION--Red and maroon shale and purple limestone. THAYNES LIMESTONE--Gray limestone and limy siltstone. WOODSIDE SHALE--Red siltstone and shale. DINWOODY FORMATION--Gray to olive-drab dolomitic siltstone. NUGGET SANDSTONE AND CHUGWATER AND DINWOODY FORMATIONS (north Wyoming). NUGGET SANDSTONE--Gray to dull-red, crossbedded quartz sandstone. CHUGWATER FORMATION--Red siltstone and shale. Alcova Limestone Member in upper middle part in north Wyoming. Thin gypsum partings near base in north and northeast Wyoming. DINWOODY FORMATION--Olive-drab hard dolomitic thin-bedded siltstone.
