Permian reference section for southeastern Zuni Mountains, Cibola County, New Mexico
Colpitts, Robert M., Jr.

Abstract:

Rocks of Permian age form the flanks of the Zuni Mountains and are divided into the Abo, Yeso, Glorieta and San Andres formations. Despite extensive geologic mapping, no detailed stratigraphic sections for this sequence exist. Two stratigraphic sections for the southeastern Zuni Mountains were measured, correlated and combined to form a detailed composite section. This section correlates very well with two wells south of Gallo Peak and provides a good surface reference section for this region.
