|Comments||Eastern Klamath Mountains. Stratigraphically and structurally complex rocks consisting primarily of shale, siltstone, and sandstone of deep-water turbidite facies; rocks are commonly phyllitic. Distribution and boundaries of unit shown on State map are much different than those shown by newer mapping, so it is difficult to determine exactly what formations and rock types are included|
|Stratigraphic units||Gazelle Fm. (part), Duzel Fm. (part), Moffett Creek Fm. (part)|
