Abstract

The Florentine Valley Formation is defined. The Formation is subdivided into three members; the Churchill Sandstone Member, the Pontoon Hill Siltstone Member, and the Mt. Field Siltstone Member. Seven consecutive fossil assemblages based on brachiopods and trilobites can be recognised within the Florentine Valley Formation. International correlation of the assemblages in the Florentine Valley Formation is based on graptolites, that of the basal Karmberg Limestone on graptolites and conodonts. The Formation ranges in age from Early Tremadoc to Late Arenig.
