MICROFOSSILS FROM THE CARBONIFEROUS OCHRE MOUNTAIN LIMESTONE, LAKESIDE MOUNTAINS, UTAH
Thin sections from the chert samples have yielded 13 different categories of identifiable microfossils. Samples include representatives from red algae, green algae, foraminifera, crinoids, acritarchs, scolecodonts, and arthropod cuticle (possibly eurypterid). Additional microfossil specimens have been observed in thin section but have yet to be identified. Predominant fossils in the thin sections indicate this area as a typical late Carboniferous, back reef environment.
