      By the early s, Clay County salt had become one of Kentucky’s leading exports, reaching as far west as the Missouri Valley, south to Tennessee, and east to Virginia. But early life in Clay County for most mountain families revolved around forest farming, based predominantly on family labor which was practiced by the vast majority of the.

      The Arbuckle Group of Oklahoma is part of a widespread carbonate sequence that formed on a carbonate bank that fringed and completely encircled the North American paleocontinent from the Late Cambrian to the early Middle Ordovician (Figure 1) (Derby et al., ).It is called the great American carbonate bank, or GACB.

      If we assume that a basin is an area “in which sediments can accumulate to considerable thickness and be preserved for long geological time periods (Einsele, ),” clearly, the Appalachian area, as it stretches from Alabama to Newfoundland, contains several this chapter, we will mainly examine the Appalachian foreland basin, an oblong sedimentary basin extending from Cited by: Find limestone in Kentucky on Yellowbook.

By far the largest area of exposure of the Ordovician rocks is in central and north-central Kentucky along the crest and flanks of the Cincinnati arch (figs. 1, 2). The area of exposure, approximately 7, mi2, is coincident with the Bluegrass region (see physiographic diagram on sheet 1 of the geologic map).

Rocks of Middle Ordovician age that crop out in central Kentucky have in the past been divided into five formations. These were, in ascending order, the Camp Nelson, Oregon, and Tyrone Limestones (the three of which compose the High Bridge Group), the Lexington Limestone, and the Cynthiana Formation.

The Camp Nelson andCited by: @article{osti_, title = {Geology of Trenton Limestone (Middle Ordovician) of northwestern Virginia, author = {Wickstrom, L.H. and Gray, J.D. and Stieglitz, R.D.}, abstractNote = {The Middle Ordovician Trenton Limestone has produced over million bbl of oil and an unestimable amount of gas from reservoirs in northwestern Ohio since the s.

In central Kentucky, Ordovician limestone and dolomite are mined and quarried for construction aggregate. Stone is being produced from the High Bridge Group and the overlying Lexington Limestone. The High Bridge Group consists of three formations: in descending stratigraphic order, the Tyrone Limestone, Oregon Formation, and Camp Nelson Limestone.

An excellent publication that details the Lexington Limestone and all its members is "Lithostratigraphy and Depositional Environments of the Lexington Limestone (Ordovician) of Central Kentucky" by Earle Cressman.

It is a Geological Survey Professional Paper () published in The Lexington Limestone and the Clays Ferry Formation of Kentucky contain an abundant and diversified fossil invertebrate fauna.

This report is concerned with the trepostome and cystoporate bryozoans that constitute a major part of that fauna. The Lexington Limestone, largely a biofragmental fossiliferous limestone, rests disconformably on the Tyrone Limestone (Middle Ordovician).

This rock is from to million years old. On the eastern side of Louisville/Jefferson County, fossils of this age can be found in road cuts and creek beds. Central Kentucky (around Lexington) has Middle Ordovician rocks from to million years ago.
