The area between Virden and Red Rock is located in southwestern New Mexico, about 30 miles northwest of the town Longsburg. Mapping covered an area of about 94 square miles.
This report deals with the stratigraphy of sedimentary and igneous rocks of the area, with particular attention to the faunal and floral assemblages of Cretaceous sediments and the consequent determination of age of interbedded volcanic rocks.
