Conglomerate and clastic rocks

These conglomeratic, tuffaceous, and other clastic rocks are not well enough constrained to be assigned either a Tertiary (unit TKs1) or Cretaceous (unit Kcg) age, so they are grouped as TKcg. Like the Cretaceous clastic unit Kcg, these rocks sit unconformably on many different age rocks. Included in this unit are units previously mapped as “Older clastic rocks” in Lincoln County; conglomerate, clastic rocks, and tuff in northern Nye County; the Gale Hills Formation in Clark County; and the Pansy Lee Conglomerate in the Krum Hills and Jackson Mountains in Humboldt County.
