The Concepcion Formation occurs in southwestern Puerto Rico and consists of massive pillowed basaltic lava flows and volcanic breccia interbedded with tuff. Unit rarely contains thin foraminiferal limestone lenses. Thickness unknown. The Concepcion is of Late Cretaceous age. Source: GNU records (USGS DDS-6; Reston GNULEX).

The Bridge Timber Mountain area in south-central La Plata County, southwestern Colorado lies mostly in the northwestern part of the Central San Juan Basin but contains a segment of the bounding Hogback 'monocline' and Four-Corners platform. The area contains rocks of late Cretaceous through early Eocene age, as well as Pliocene, Pleistocene, and Recent terrace and pediment gravels.

Studies to date have concluded that pre-Eocene basement rocks on the island possess little petroleum potential, although, ironically, the only free oil and gas that.

Source: GNU records (USGS DDS-6; Reston GNULEX). The Canyon Range Formation (informal new name), formerly mapped as the Indianola Group within the Canyon Range, is divisible into two distinct, mappable units, A and B.

Unit A is nearly all conglomerate strata, and conglomerate texture and sedimentary structures suggest an alluvial fan depositional environment. Precambrian and basal Cambrian quartzite clasts represent the erosional debris from.
