Views of this part of the outcrop, forming smooth slopes between the ledges of the Brushy Canyon formation and the cliffs of the Capitan limestone, are shown in plate 1, plate 5, A, and plate Sections of the Cherry Canyon formation can be seen on the right-hand half of plate 6. The paleotopographic influence of the upper Cutoff Fm mass transport complexes on distribution of lower Brushy Canyon strata documented in outcrop is recognized in the subsurface, but at a larger. This report provides information for use in both short- and long term land-planning decisions, particularly at the county level, and an indication of the present and future economic impact of mineral and energy development. The report discusses eight major commodity groups: (1) oil and gas, (2) coal and coal resin, (3) coal-bed methane, (4) other energy resources (oil-impregnated rock, oil. member of the Bell Canyon Formation, can be traced in outcrop to the base of the Guadalupe Mountains where it grades into the lower slope carbonate rocks of the Capitan Formation (Tyrell, , ; Babcock, ). Basinward, the Lamar becomes a dark calcareous siltstone which is referred to in the subsurface as the "Delaware Lime.".

  The Brushy Canyon outcrop belt is an oblique-strike transect including, in continuous exposure, basin margin (canyon, upper-slope to basin-floor) strata along the western margin of the Permian Delaware Basin ().The northwestern basin margin is defined in outcrop by the lateral (sidelap) pinch-out of Brushy Canyon strata (King, ; Rossen, ; Gardner & Sonnenfeld, ).

A small isolated outcrop of thin-bedded limestone, probably the McCombs or Pinery Member of the Bell Canyon, grades into the Capitan Limestone at the mouth of Black Canyon.

Rare examples of outcrop-based studies with subsurface constraint of channelized systems include the Eocene of the Ainsa Basin, northeast Spain (e.g., Pickering and Corregidor, ); the Miocene Mount Messenger Formation, New Zealand (Browne and Slatt, ); and the Permian Brushy Canyon Formation, United States (Beaubouef.
