Upper Paleozoic rocks of the post-orogenic overlap assemblage are exposed throughout the northern part of the Diamond Range. The limestones, siItstones, sandstones, shales, and conglomerates are characterized by abundant chert and quartz that was reworked from eugeosynclinal rocks exposed in the source area to the west. Continental sediments of the Newark Canyon Formation were deposited during the Early Cretaceous on an erosional surface above the Carbon Ridge Formation of Permian age.
