Modern caves have developed along this same Mississippian-age (330 million years ago) paleokarst horizon in the Mooney Falls Member because groundwater readily dissolves caves as it moves more freely along this permeable horizon (Fig.
These depressions in the bedrock surface are consistent with paleokarst features underlying Winnipeg (Baracos and Kingerski, 1998).
Geology and Speleology were yet to develop as sciences, yet Lewis & Clark made significant observations of karst, pseudokarst, and paleokarst features.
However, for at least the last 30 years, those breccias have also been recognized as post-depositional paleokarst features that occur on a regional scale and likely also cut formational boundaries.
The sandstones are similar in age and type to producing reservoirs in Oman and in the Cooper Basin (Australia) and the limestones are similar to producing reservoirs in the USA (such as the Viola and Trenton Formations) and in the Tarim Basin of Xinjiang in North West China, where Carboniferous sandstones unconformably overlie producing paleokarst in Ordovician limestones that are remarkably similar to those in Tasmania.
