Abstract

The previous correlation of diamictons now considered to be the Oregon Till Member silty facies and the Fairdale Till Member with Winnebago Formation members is no longer valid since the Esmond Till overlying the Oregon Till Member silty facies and Fairdale Till Member are Illinoian in age rather than Wisconsinan. The Fairdale and Oregon silty facies are now recognized instead of Capron, Argyle, and Nimtz when occurring south of Piscasaw Creek. The contact between the Oregon silt facies and the Fairdale can be observed at the Fairdale Quarry Section. -from Authors
