The Garnavillo Member of the Guttenberg Formation (Templeton and Willman, 1963, p. 113).
Named for Garnavillo, Clayton County, Iowa, 7.5 miles northwest of the type section.
The type section of the Garnavillo Member is located in the roadcut of U.S. Highway 52 on the northwest side of Guttenberg (SW SW 5, 92N-2W), where the member is 1.7 feet thick.
The Garnavillo Member is the lower member of the Guttenberg Formation.
The Garnavillo is present throughout most of the area where Guttenberg strata occur, but it does not extend as far east as the overlying Glenhaven Member. It is 2-3 feet thick in southwestern Illinois.
The Garnavillo Member consists of gray to gray-tan, white-weathering, argillaceous limestone in medium beds with thin gray-brown shale partings. Phosphatic nodules are widely present in the lower foot in the northwestern outcrop area, where the Kings Lake Formation is missing.
