The coal deposits are in the Vermejo Formation and overlying Raton Formation (Cretaceous and Paleocene). This guide consists of three general sections: an introduction that includes discussions of Raton basin stratigraphy and the Cretaceous Tertiary (K-T) boundary; descriptions of the geology along the route from Denver, Colorado, to Raton, New Mexico; and descriptions of several K-T sites in the Raton basin.

Much of the information is from previous articles and field guides by the authors. Title: Abrupt appearance of shocked quartz at the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary, Raton Basin, Colorado and New Mexico Unique quartz grains as large as mm and having up to 6 sets of closely spaced microfractures (CSM) occur at the palynological K-T boundary at 9 scattered sites from Trinidad, Colorado, south 50 km to Raton, New Mexico.

The species Catopsalis fissidens was named by Cope E.D. in It has also been known as C. utahensis (Gazin C.L., ) and Polymastodon fissidens (Cope, ). It has been found in the Torrejonian (Paleocene)-age beds in the San Juan Basin of New Mexico and Utah.

The University of Wyoming boasts a possible : Mammalia. The deepest, highest ranking and probably gassiest coals in the San Juan River coal region of southwestern Colorado are found in the mile (mi) wide San Juan Basin of Colorado and New Mexico.

The thickest and most continuous coal beds in the basin are found in. Saurophaganax ("lord of lizard-eaters") is a genus of allosaurid dinosaur from the Morrison Formation of Late Jurassic (latest Kimmeridgian age, about million years ago) Oklahoma, United States.

Some paleontologists consider it to be a species of Allosaurus (A. maximus). Saurophaganax represents a very large Morrison allosaurid characterized by horizontal laminae at the bases of the dorsal Clade: Dinosauria.

An extremely diverse lower Paleocene ( million years ago) fossil leaf site from Castle Rock, Colorado, contains fossil litter that is similar to the litter of extant equatorial rainforests. The presence of a high-diversity tropical rainforest is unexpected, because other Paleocene floras are species-poor, a feature generally attributed to the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) by: General Information.

The Cretaceous strata that fill the San Juan Basin of northwestern New Mexico and southwestern Colorado were shortened in a generally N-S to NNSSW direction during the Laramide orogeny.

This shortening was the result of compression of the strata between southward indentation of the San Juan Uplift at the north edge of the basin and northward.
