These are the Rector Conglomerate, the Ogo Member, the Roaring River Member, the Chickabally Member, the Huling Sandstone, the Bald Hills Member, and the Gas Point Member. The thickness of the formation ranged from 7,400 feet in the northern part of the Ono Quadrangle to 22,000 feet in the southern Ono and Chanchellula Peak Quadrangles.
