The Mt. Carmel Sandstone Member of the Bond Formation (Worthen, 1875, p. 52, 55).
Named for Mt. Carmel bluff on the Wabash River at Mt. Carmel, Wabash County (W 1/2 21, 1S-12W).
It occurs about 10 feet below the Flannigan Coal.
The Mt. Carmel Sandstone is well developed in eastern and southeastern Illinois, where it is the first major channel sandstone above the Shoal Creek Limestone, and it is as much as 80 feet thick in places.
The Mt. Carmel Sandstone has been correlated with the McWain Sandstone of southwestern Illinois.
