Tennessee "marble," a pink bryozoan/ crinoidal
limestone from the Holston Formation of eastern Tennessee is also evident in Erie Street Cemetery and Ridgeville Cemetery.
The upper Fusselman is dominated by widespread thick, crinoidal
grainstones, and lesser amounts of dolomitic wackestone to skeletal packstone.
The wells utilized horizontal drilling techniques to explore three potential zones: the Middle Daly Member and the Cruickshank Crinoidal
Member in the Lodgepole formation and the underlying Bakken formation.
Carbonates of the studied wells are mainly of coarse-grained bioclastic, crinoidal
, brachiopod and stromatoporoid limestones intercalated with marls (Fig.
The bioclastic limestones consist mainly of transported crinoidal
fragments, but brachiopods, corals, fusulinids, and even plant remains occur as well.
