    The Drakes yields to gallons per day to drilled wells in broad valleys and along streams in uplands; it yields almost no water to drilled wells on hillsides or ridgetops, and some water to small springs. Ashlock Formation, Grant Lake Limestone, Calloway Creek Limestone (Oaf). Ashlock Formation: Overlies: Garrard Siltstone: Location; Region Kentucky: Country United States: The Calloway Creek Formation is a geologic formation in Kentucky. It preserves fossils dating back to the Ordovician period. See also List of fossiliferous stratigraphic units in Kentucky Country: United States.

    rocks in the basin mostly consist of interbedded shales and limestones of the Drakes, Ashlock, and Calloway Creek Limestone formations (KGS Online Geologic Map). There are 4 main stream segments that drain the basin: East Fork, West Fork, Dreaming Creek, and the main Otter Creek : Elijah D Wolfe, Walter S Borowski, Jacob L. Robin. The study area (Fig. 1) has been mapped (Greene, ) as the Ashlock Formation, which consists of the Tate, Gilbert, Stingy Creek, Terrill and Reba Members over eastern Kentucky (Weir et al, ). The Ashlock lies above the Calloway Creek Formation and below the Bull Fork Formation and is Maysvillian (Cincinnatian) or Ashgillian in age (Fig. 2).Author: Kevin G. Greff, Walter S Borowski.

      The Middle Devonian (Givetian) of central Kentucky is represented by a complex and somewhat enigmatic succession of sandy dolomitic limestones and chert-rich wackestones, silty dolostones, and thin dark shales belonging to the Boyle Formation and Portwood Member of the New Albany Formation. The lower contact of the Boyle Formation is a distinct, regionally angular Cited by: 1. The Calloway Trail starts at the north end of the parking area where it affords a good view into the steep-walled canyon of West Clear Creek. Some of the rock strata visible from the rim includes limestone laid when the area was covered by a shallow sea, and sandstone, the result of deposition as ocean sediment and eolian (windblown) accumulation/5(14).

Geologic unit mapped in Kentucky: Ashlock Formation, Grant Lake and Calloway Creek Limestones, and Fairview Formation, undivided.

Furthermore, these parochial units may differ in their boundaries and vertical extent. For example, the Dillsboro Formation of Indiana encompasses the entirety of the Fairview, Grant Lake, Arnheim, Waynesville, and Liberty formations of Ohio and the Fairview/Calloway Creek, Grant Lake, Bull Fork, and (in part) Drakes formations of Kentucky.

In northwestern KY and southwestern OH, the only part of the Drakes that is exposed is 25 to 30 feet of the Preachersville Member. Thickness of the Drakes is to feet.

The Outer Bluegrass proper, an area of hummocky, irregularly rolling hills and low ridges, is developed on Upper Ordovician limestones, siltstones, and interbedded shales of the Garrard Siltstone, Calloway Creek, Ashlock, and Drakes formations.

The book summarizes the results of the study of faults and coseismic deformation that presents the manifestations of seismically induced geological hazards in Southern East Siberia and adjacent areas. These include the Calloway Creek Limestone, Garrard Siltstone, Tanglewood Limestone, Grier and Curdsville Limestone, Clays Ferry Formation, Crab Orchard Formation, Brassfield Dolomite, Ashlock Formation, New Albany Shale, Irvine Formation, Calloway Creek Limestone, Drakes Formation, Boyle Dolomite, and Borden Formation.

Competent limestone. Many of these members are thin, so the Ashlock Formation is convenient for mapping these as a single unit, but not very useful for paleoenvironmental or sequence stratigraphic interpretation. The Ashlock overlies the Calloway Creek Formation and is overlain by the Drakes Formation.

The major Ordovician units above the Lexington Limestone in the Blue Grass region are: The Clays Ferry Formation, the Kope Formation, the Garrard Siltstone, the Fairview Formation, the Calloway Creek Limestone, the Grant Lake Limestone, the Ashlock Formation, the Bull Fork Formation, and the Drakes Formation.
