|Eastern Mojave Vegetation||Mount Dunfee, Esmeralda County, Nevada.|
See also: Gold Point.
Mountain southeast of Gold Point.
Ediacaran-Cambrian strata in the Great Basin of Nevada and California were deposited on the western margin of Laurentia (present coordinates) during the rift-drift transition, with the strata at Mount Dunfee representing one of the most distal, carbonate-dominated sections that is preserved. The Ediacaran to lower Cambrian Deep Spring Formation consists of three members: the Dunfee (lower), Esmeralda (middle), and Gold Point (upper) Members, which are also exposed in the White-Inyo Mountains (Smith, et al., 2016)
