Oligocene deposits are almost entirely of marine origin and are characterised by limestone or other calcareous sediments. In the Te Kuiti area of the North Island, limestone is widespread and there is extensive cave development (e.g. Waitomo) and karst topography. Calcareous sandstone and mudstone are also present in this area.Oligocene High Resolution Stock Photography and Oligocene tilted folded vertical limestone rocks on coast of Kaikoura South Island New Zealand Stane Street, Billingshurst. 14th November 2019.

Distribution: Most of Hernando and Pasco counties are underlain by the Suwannee Limestone. The exceptions are a triangularly shaped area in the northwestern portion and a strip bordering the Withlacoochee River on the eastern side of Hernando County and a triangular area inGeolex — Ocala publications Pg. 56. Ocala limestone. Ocala transgresses beveled surface of Avon Park, Tallahassee, and Lake City limestones. Top of Ocala was land surface before younger marine deposits were laid down. Ocala is overlain by Marianna limestone, Byram limestone, and Suwannee limestone, or Hawthorn formation. [Age is late Eocene.]Oligocene stratigraphy in the Sinjar Basin, The distribution of the Oligocene succession (basinal and reef–back-reef deposits) in Iraq closely follows the pattern set in Middle to Late Eocene times. Reef–back-reef limestone has a linear outcrop across northern Iraq from northwest (the eastern part of the studied area) to southeast.Abdalla Sa'ad Musa Nadiif: The Geology of Somaliland• Oligocene-Miocene coal deposits of the Daban Basin have lower quality compared to the other deposits. The coal has a high percentage of ash and a relatively low calorific value. The depositional environment for the formation of the seams was that of an estuarine with low acidity and high sulphate content.Correlating Mediterranean shallow water deposits Abstract Shallow-marine sediment records have the strong potential to display sensitive environmental changes in sedimentary geometries and skeletal content. However, the time resolution of most neritic carbonate records is not high enough to be compared with climatic events as recorded in the deep-sea sediment archives. In order to resolve the Maltese Geology The five Formations of strata that make up the surface rock of the Maltese Islands originally formed as carbonate sediments deposited on the sea bed of the Pelagian Spur during the Oligocene and Miocene epochs (from about 30 to 5 million yeas age). The area where the Maltese Islands would subsequently appear was positioned some Continue reading

continuous deposits of sand, clay, and sandy gravel of late Tertiary to Holocene age. In figures 1 and 2, only those deposits believed to be of Quaternary age are shown; most of these are alluvium and various kinds of beach deposits.

The Oligocene deposits are of fresh-water, brackish, marine and terrestrial origin; they include soft sands, sandstones, grits, marls, shales, limestones, conglomerates and lignites.
