Stanley Group or Stanley Shale

ARDMORE-SHERMAN- "Stanley Shale"- Shale, dark-gray, siliceous,with some gray to buff fine-grained sandstones; thickness,10,000 feet Occurs in the OUACHITA MNTS. McALESTER TEXARKANA- "Stanley Group"- Shale, olive-green to gray, illitic, chloritic, with many5- to 30-foot-thick beds of poorly sorted, micaceous, quartzose sandstones and some thin siliceous cherty beds and black shales; several tuff beds occur in basal 1,000 feet and are indicated by red line in Stanley exposures as designated on map; many asphaltite, lead, and quartz veins occur along fault zones; mostly Chesterian age; thickness, 7,500 to 14,000 feet or more. Occurs in the OUACHITA MTNS SOUTH OF TI VALLEY FAULT.

Comments Is found in the Ouachita Mountains of OK in the Ouachita tectonic belt province. Stanley shale is a sedimentary rock of typical geosynclinal facies. Stanley includes four siliceous shale members (ascending): Basal Ten Mile Creek, Tuskahoma, Middle Ten Mile Creek, and Moyers. (Goldstein, 1953).
