Age and stratigraphic relations of the Formosa reef limestone Middle Devonian of southwestern Ontario, Canada


Geological Society of America Bulletin 72(3): 341-349
Age and stratigraphic relations of the Formosa reef limestone Middle Devonian of southwestern Ontario, Canada
The Formosa reef limestone consists of a localized 3-dimensional cluster of very pure, massive limestone reefs (bioherms) outcropping as irregular knobs in a roughly elliptical area in southern Bruce and northern Huron counties, Ontario. Outcrop and subsurface evidence indicates that the reefs are small, numerous, scattered over an outcrop area of about 150 sq. mi. and occur through a stratigraphic interval of approximately 200 ft. within the brown, bituminously laminated dolomite of the Detroit River group (undifferentiated), which is about 240 ft. thick in the area.
