Historical:Glenburn Till Member
John C. Frye and H. B. Willman
The Glenburn Till Member of the Wedron Formation (Johnson et al., 1971, p. 202) is named for Glenburn, Vermilion County.
The type section is in the Emerald Pond Section (NE SW SW 33, 20N-12W) (Johnson et al., 1972, p. 42).
Extent and Thickness
In the type section it is 17 feet thick. It occurs in central eastern Illinois.
At the type section it occurs above the Banner Formation of Kansan age and it is overlain by the Batestown Till Member of the Wedron Formation, but elsewhere in Vermilion and adjacent counties it has been described as overlying the Robein Silt and the Oakland Till Member of the Wedron Formation.
The Glenburn consists of pinkish brown to dark brown, calcareous, somewhat sandy till.
