Title: Cretaceous: East Side Sacramento Valley, Shasta and Butte Counties, California

Author(s): W. P. Popenoe (2)


Isolated outcrops of Upper Cretaceous beds are found in the lower stream valleys, north, northeast, and east of Redding, Shasta County. The total thickness of the exposed beds aggregates 4,000 feet or more. Six well marked lithologic members, alternately predominantly sandstones and shales, may be recognized. The upper sandstones of Oak Run Valley, 2,500-3,000 feet above the base of the section, are the probable correlatives of the base of the Cretaceous section at Chico Creek 70 miles south.
