Cramer. The Laramie Formation is a geologic formation of Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) age, named by Clarence King in for exposures in northeastern Colorado, in the United States. It was deposited on a coastal plain and in coastal swamps that flanked the Western Interior Seaway. It contains coal, clay and uranium deposits, as well as plant and animal fossils, including dinosaur y: United States.

Study Area The Laramie Mountains, in southeast Wyoming, extend north and then northwest from northeast Colorado near the Wyoming border approximately miles, ending in the vicinity of Douglas, Wyoming. The range is . The Laramie Mountains are part of a large basement‐involved Laramide uplift that includes the Front Range of Colorado and the Laramie Mountains of Wyoming. The central Laramie Mountains contain the boundary between the Archean Wyoming province to the north and the Colorado province, a series of Paleoproterozoic accreted terranes, to the south Cited by: 8.

The Colorado Proterozoic province is separated from Archean rocks of the Wyoming province by a major structural boundary, the Cheyenne belt. Proterozoic rocks south of the Cheyenne belt are exposed in the Sierra Madre, Medicine Bow Mountains, and Laramie Range of southern Wyoming. Laramie is a pleasant western community of approximat situated on the Laramie Plains between the Laramie Mountains and the Medicine Bow Range.

Primarily a university town and ranching center, the town was founded in as the Union Pacific pushed its rails across the continent. Laramie Mountains, range of the central Rocky Mountains, in southeastern Wyoming, U.S. A northern section of Colorado’s Front Range, it stretches north-northwestward for miles ( km) from the Wyoming-Colorado border, between Laramie and Cheyenne, to the North Platte River, around Casper.

The range (roughly 25–50 miles [40–80 km] wide) rises about 3, feet ( metres) from the Great. The Laramie Mountains are a range of moderately high peaks on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains in the U.S states of Wyoming and Colorado.

The range is the northernmost extension of the line of the ranges along the eastern side of the Rockies, and in particular of the higher peaks of the Front Range directly to the south. The Casper Mountain arch connects the Laramie Range with the Casper Arch and the Granite Mountains (aka Sweetwater Arch).

The mountain is elevated by the south dipping Casper Mountain fault zone. The exposed basement rocks are part of the central Wyoming greenstone belt that extends from the South Pass area of the Wind River Range eastward across the Sweetwater subprovince.

The Laramie Mountains of south-eastern Wyoming contain two metamorphic domains that are separated by the Ga. Laramie Peak shear zone (LPSZ). South of the LPSZ lies the Palmer Canyon block, where apatite U-Pb ages are c. Ma and the rocks have undergone Proterozoic kyanite-grade Barrovian metamorphism.

In contrast, in the Laramie Peak block, north of the shear zone, the U-Pb. Find many great new & used options and get the best deals for Structural Geology of the Laramie Mountains, Southeastern Wyoming and Northeastern Colorado: Ri by D.
