About This Publication
This quadrangle is one of several created for the mapping study of the North-Central Texas transportation corridor north of the Fort Worth area. Mapsof this corridor provide a basic geologic framework to aid in managing water and earth resources, planning land use, identifying aquifer recharge areas, and identifying sources of aggregate and other earth resources. Geologic units exposed across this corridor comprise about 1,500 ft of Cretaceous shelf and shore-zone deposits, including the upper Antlers sand, clay, and conglomerate; Walnut limestone and marl; Goodland limestone; Kiamichi marl and clay; Duck Creek limestone; and Forth limestone. Goodland limestone and Antlers sand are potential earth resources and are quarried in adjacent areas. Antlers deposits in the subsurface compose the Trinity Aquifer, a major aquifer in the region.
