Geosci 001 Section 10 Lab #3 The Bellefonte and Nealmont Formations Kevin Harrison Joseph Okelarin Bob Guyer Jovan Hinton Keith Crouse A geological examination of a four meter thick, exposed vertical rock face that includes the Bellefonte and Nealmont rock formations was performed. Presented here are those field observations, and the conclusions that are drawn from them. There are five distinct layers or beds of varying thicknesses that compose this four meter thick rock strata, all of which appear to be of the sedimentary type. The first bed is approximately 1.5 meter thick and light grey in color. The sediment that composes this rock was deposited in thin horizontal layers. Several drops of diluted hydrochloric acid were dropped on the rock with little to no reaction. Next, the surface of the rock was scratched to reduce the grain size and HCl was dropped on it again. This time the reaction was a little more noticeable by visually observing the release of carbon dioxide. From these observations we conclude that this rock contains little organic matter due to
