Title: Clay Creek Salt Dome, Washington County, Texas

Author(s): F. E. Heath, J. A. Waters, W. B. Ferguson (2)


The Clay Creek salt dome was discovered while surface geology was being mapped. Oil and gas are produced from sands of Cook Mountain, Mount Selman, and Wilcox age. The upward movement of this dome commenced prior to the deposition of lower Mount Selman sediments and continued at least to upper Oligocene time. An area covering the central part of this structure has been subjected to slumping since early Mount Selman time. These movements have been irregular.
