The Paleocene Kabalar Formation is conformably
overlain by the Eocene Daghacilar Formation, which is composed of red-coloured marl with intercalated sandstone.
Hirnantian mudstones are abruptly but conformably
overlain by anoxic black shales with abundant graptolites of the basal Silurian Akidograptus ascensus Biozone (Storch 2006).
Let [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] be partitioned conformably
to the block structure in (3.
They state that in the type section of the Boss Point Formation "rocks considered correlative with the Ward Point Member are conformably
overlain by redbeds of the Little River Formation, the latter of which are tentatively correlated with the Grand Anse Formation of New Brunswick.
The Wilson Brook Formation passes upwards conformably
into the Portapique River Formation, of red unfossiliferous siltstone and minor sandstone, which Donohoe and Wallace (1985) interpreted as early Devonian based on lithologic correlation with the Knoydart Formation near Arisaig.
1989) showed that basalt at Five Islands, Partridge Island, and Gape d'Or conformably
overlying the Blomidon Formation is strarigraphically equivalent to the lower lava unit on North Mountain.
It is absent in the Lower Hayden belt where the younger Lower Birch Island Member rests conformably
upon Miramichi light grey slate and quartzite at the Lower Birch Island brachiopod locality and almost assuredly elsewhere along the belt.
The top 100 m of the Lawrenceton Formation contains metre-scale lenses of pale green, thinly laminated siltstone identical to the conformably
overlying Fogo Harbour Formation.
The Matapedia Group is conformably
overlain by Silurian sedimentary and volcanic rocks of the Chaleurs Group (Ruitenberg et al.
Stratigraphic evidence includes the interfingering of the Hersey and Eastport formations and the replacement of the Hersey by the Eastport in more southerly reaches, with the Eastport Formation apparently conformably
overlying the Leighton Formation (see Gates 1975).
The Lincolnville member conformably
overlies the Halfmoon Lake member and is one of the most areally extensive units in the map area (Fig.
This contact is shared conformably
with the older Little River Formation, a lithologically distinct non-coal-bearing, red bed unit (Calder et al.
1 m), apparently conformably
overlying the Oligocene, contains moderately rich, diverse and fairly well-preserved calcareous benthic foraminiferal assemblages but few planktics.
The depositional succession in each Horton subbasin typically consists of (i) a thick basal coarse-grained alluvial succession that rests unconformably on older "basement" rock, overlain by (il) a dark-grey, fine-grained lacustrine succession, which is overlain conformably
to unconformably by (iii) an upper coarse- to fine-grained alluvial succession.
The Early Devonian Torbrook Formation conformably
overlies the White Rock Formation and similarly represents a shallow marine rift environment (Jensen 1975; James 1998; White in press).
