There was little difference in the diversity of invertebrates living on the floors of the Suak and Tippecanoe Seas. The narrow seaway (lapetus Ocean) between Baltica and Laurentia began to close during the ordovician, thus producing the first east-coast orogeny of Paleozoic vintage.

It is primarily composed of hard sandstone with some inter-bedded siltstone. Fossils. It preserves fossils dating back to the Miocene epoch of the Neogene period Country: United States.

A fossil is a remnant or trace of an organism of a some earlier geologic age, such as a skeleton or leaf imprint, embedded and preserved in the earth's crust.

One of the most persistently fossiliferous geologic rock formations in all the western Great Basin Desert wilds of Inyo County, California, is the Lower Mississippian Tin Mountain Limestone, a classic carbonate accumulation that has yielded an abundance of well-preserved invertebrate animal remains to million years old--including such major groups as brachiopods, bryozoans, conodonts.
