Sedimentary > Carbonate > Limestone (Bed)The upper facies is a white, poorly to well indurated, poorly sorted, very fossiliferous limestone (grainstone, packstone and wackestone). Silicified limestone (chert) is common in the upper facies.
Sedimentary > Carbonate > Dolostone (Bed)The upper facies be partially to completely dolomitized in some regions (Miller, 1986).
Sedimentary > Chemical > ChertSilicified limestone (chert) is common in the upper facies.
