        Facies trends and a wealth of paleocurrent data from the outcrop areas indicate generally westward transport directions in the Ouachita Mountains area, parallel to the continental slope (Figure 21; Houseknecht, ), with some smaller marginal fans deposited on the continental slope from sediment-gravity flows flowing “transversely.

      The thin-skinned structures of the late Paleozoic Ouachita thrust belt intersect the basement structures of the Southern Oklahoma aulacogen beneath the Mesozoic strata of the Gulf Coastal Plain in southeastern Oklahoma. The Ouachita thrust belt forms a large northwest-directed salient which extends primarily in the subsurface from central Mississippi northwestward to Arkansas and eastern. Volume: 69 () Issue: 9. (September) First Page: Last Page: Title: Magnetotelluric Soundings in Ouachita Thrust Belt of Central Texas: ABSTRACT Author(s): J. G. Muncey, W. J. Ehni Article Type: Meeting abstract Abstract: A station, line-mi, remote referenced magnetotelluric (MT) traverse across a portion of central Texas has been recorded and analyzed.

      The presence of a second major linear positive element has been established in east-central Texas by seismic records and by Shell 1 Barrett. A faulted anticlinal structure, herein named the "Waco uplift," is at least 25 mi behind the leading edge of overthrust Ouachita facies rocks. The Wagon Wheel Field, Ward County, Texas (Fig. 1, locality 11), produces from Middle and Upper Pennsylvanian beds near the topographic and structural crest on the north-central part of the Central Basin Platform. Examination of cores showed more than 30 thin depositional sequences, ranging from less than a meter to more that 8 m (25 feet.

The Marathon uplifit of west Texas and the Ouachita Mountains of Oklahoma and Arkansas comprise the surface expressions of a Paleozoic orogenic belt extending across the south-central U.S.A.

A century of petroleum exploration in the Marathons and Ouachitas has yielded several oil discoveries. Deformation near the rocks during the Ouachita Orogeny end of the Paleozoic caused extensive folding and faulting when geosynclinal facies were thrusted over cratonic (modified from King, ).

The Permian Basin Up to 3, m of Permian rocks underlies much of West Texas. One of six volumes generated by each GSA section for the Decade of North American Geology (DNAG) project, this Centennial Field Guide contains descriptions of sites or site clusters representing outstanding geologic locations in Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Grayson County is located in the eastern part of north-central Texas, adjacent to the Red River. Sherman, the county seat, is about 70 miles north of Dallas. Although occasional wildcat wells had been drilled in the county since early in the century, the first commercial oil pool, the Handy field, was not discovered until Unconformable Mesozoic units overlie approximately 80% of the Ouachita Orogenic Belt.

Two large exposures, the Ouachita Mountains of Oklahoma and Arkansas and the Marathon uplift of West Texas, provide the bulk of our knowledge about the belt (Figure 1).

Geophysical and well data provide the remainder of the database. Upper Pennsylvanian rocks were mapped on the surface and into the subsurface acr sq mi of north-central Texas.

The study area includes most of the late Paleozoic eastern shelf of the West Texas basin. Strata in 2, wells were correlated using sample and mechanical logs. The occurrence of similar organic facies source characteristics for oils separated by > mi (~ km) along the trend of the Marathon-Ouachita fold- thrust belt suggests that the source (s) for these oils may be present throughout the subsurface of central and east-central Texas.

Pub. Type: Special Volume Pub. Year: Author(s): H. H. Bradfield (2) Abstract: Grayson County is located in the eastern part of north-central Texas.The structural grain of the Central Texas Hill Country follows the Paleozoic tectonic template defined by the Llano (Massif) Uplift and the Ouachita Orogenic Belt.

Late Paleo-zoic tectonic plate movement to the northwest resulted in the thrusting of a thick basinal facies, sedimentary prism against the Llano Uplift.by the Ouachita Orogeny when the South American plate was thrust against the North American plate (Figure 2).

Basinal and slope facies strata were destroyed or extensively structurally deformed. Ellenburger Group facies cannot be traced south of the slope setting in southwest Texas because of the Ouachita Orogeny.
