The Noix Oolite Member is commonly is 1.5-3.5 feet thick in western Illinois (Rubey, 1952), and it is as much as 2 feet thick in southern Illinois (Pryor and Ross, 1962).
The Noix Oolite Member is generally at or close to the base of the Edgewood Formation but is lenticular and absent in some areas.
